Life moves on…

March 19, 2010 at 7:43 pm (new project)

and so to do blogs…  I made a statement in 2009 that I may come to regret…) it went something like this… ‘2010 is the year I’m either going to take my ‘art’ seriously or give up….!’

so as I’d read that ‘if you want to be taken seriously as an artist you should use your own name in your websites/blogs….’  not sure about the truth of this statement but it did sort of make some kind of sense…

so my new blog…  and website do hope you’ll pop over and have a look…

not sure what I’m going to do with ‘magic indigo’ yet… :)

What do I want to get out of my blog…? & who do I want to read it…?

April 24, 2009 at 10:07 am (blog triage)

I want to use my blog to keep a record of my creations as well as a record of my thoughts and ideas… mistakes too… Hopefully this will enable me to learn… grow & develop not only in my art work but as a person too…

To interact with other like minded people… people with similar interests … hopefuly some of my thoughts/ideas/creations will ‘spark’ others so that comments are left… another point of view… allowing ideas/thoughts to grow and develop further…

Taking a longer term view I hope to attract ‘buyers’ of my creations to my ‘selling space’ – not yet created.. mayby a wesite or etsy/artfire –  these ‘buyers’ I hope would also add and interact with my blog via comments…

Welcome … a new beginning…

April 22, 2009 at 11:24 am (blog triage)

With the commitment to revamp and produce a more vibrant blog I signed up for the four week blog triage class –  Maintaining a Healthy Artist Blog… with Cynthia MorrisAlyson B Stanfield

Today’s assignment is two fold… 1st I have to describe the people I want to visit and read this blog….  2nd I have to describe what I hope to get from writing this blog…

Two topics, both of which are going to take some thought….

Take it further challenge for April …

April 8, 2008 at 9:11 am (challenge)

“With the arrival of Autumn in my part of the world and Spring in the Northern hemisphere my mind turns to ideas of cycles that involve change. Some people see change as positive while others are fearful of change.

How do you see change? That is the challenge topic this month.”

Well this is SharonB’s challenge for this month… my mind is some what blank in ideas… I may have to work with the colour scheme this month…

cyber fyber exhibition…

March 15, 2008 at 7:55 am (cyber fyber exhibition)

cyberfyber01.jpg
these are my contribution to Susan Lenz ‘Cyber Fyber Exhibition’
the ATC is made of pink hand dyed cotton it’s then been stamped  then FME…
the postcard started life as a ‘mop up cloth’ while I was dyeing…  I really loved the colours so did some stamping on to it… now I’ve added a few gold scraps then added some machine stitching… so they are now on their way to Susan… I’ll post a picture of Susan’s just as soon as they arrive…

spent a lovely afternoon…

February 2, 2008 at 7:35 pm (embroidery, stitch / machine)

in the company of other embroiderers… Vivienne A Brown gave a talk ‘Liberating the Liberty Bodice’… I’ve search for links but only found this

it’ s to ‘Stitch with the Embroiderers’ Guide
I can remember seeing this exhibition at a quilt/embroidery show…(in Harrogate?) will try and remember which show…!! it was a very inspiring talk with a very… very good ‘power point’ presentation as well… if you get the change I can highly recommend it… the actually work was simple stunning… machine stitching on both fabric and paper with wonderful use of the computer as a design tool…
this talk was arranged by the Guisborough & District Branch of the Embroiderers’ Guild
perhaps I meet you there one day…
