28th September 2011

Please come along and support me at my first craft fayre!

It's a bit short notice but I managed to get a table last minute and I'm very excited to see what people think of my pieces!

It's being held at the University of Plymouth, Roland Levinsky Building from 10.30 - 3.30pm and it's free admission!

I hate to use the 'C' word so early, but you never know you just might find that perfect Christmas present!

English Flower Tea!

Being a novice gardener I should probably have read this book rather than decorate a table with it, but then what are mum's for!

The different shades of green create a patchwork effect highlighted by the pinks and purples of the flowers, I think it's my prettiest piece so far!

It would brighten up any room and bring a bit of the British summer inside (without the rain!).

You could even see how many you could name whilst relaxing with a cup of tea - for me that wouldn't take long!

'From Me to You'

My second commission complete!  I am really pleased with this one, I think it makes a very ordinary music stand truly unique!

Back of stand

The music stand and Beatles book were provided by the client and I just did the rest!

I love the idea of being able to see your favourite band's pictures while you play their music, rather than them all being hidden away in a book on a dusty bookshelf!

Using your loaf!

This is my first commissioned piece and to say I was nervous is an understatement!  My friend wanted something for her mums new country kitchen, she provided the book and it was up to me to choose the piece!

I found a plain wooden bread bin and covered it with the brilliant old 1950's cookbook, using other old recipe book pictures for the inside.   I matched the handle and hinge to the colour of the stripes on the pages.

I love the fact that the book was well loved and complete with all the usual cookery stains, it makes a completely personal piece!
