Did my sketchbook make it to America?

Sketchbook made it to Brooklyn, America on the 24th December 2010 :)

Maltese Holiday

Just returned from a fabulous week in Malta! The architecture was breathtaking as were the views out over the harbour and around Valletta. Bus journeys around the island were unquestionably the most thrilling experience, speed was no problem for these museum pieces :} Lots of inspiration for anyone looking for research for a textile project and a photographers paradise :)

The first being 'Joy' my Momiji Couture Contest entry which was exhibited at the Royal/t Gallery in Los Angeles.

Sketchbook Revival!

So much has happened over the past few months it's been difficult to focus completely on my sketcbook project. I'm determined it's going in the post this week!!! I decided to scavenge some of my drawing sheets from my first year at University and the following photos are the results of very enjoyable gathering of imagery :)

Reindeers & Cupcakes

Over the past couple of weeks I've been busy knitting Reindeer brooches and cupcakes which are just soooo lovely to make. I designed the Reindeer brooch pattern myself so I'm especially proud of them. They were originally for a craft fair at a local community arts centre but the weather saw the event cancelled. But I've really got the bug and am busily knitting more for the next craft fair that comes up.
