  1. This weekend was my 4th Art in the pen, to say it was exhausting was an understatement. 

    It was a fantastic event, I met loads of lovely people and some of the comments my work received was overwhelming. 

    Below are a few photos...

    I sold my favourite picture on Saturday to a lovely lady called Lizzie,  when I got home I received the email below...

    Just wanted to say a massive thank you for the beautiful felt landscape picture I bought off you ... It's now in situ and looks absolutely stunning ... I am so thrilled with it. I will give it a loving home!

    First I laid out 4 layers of the white base then divided into 3 and covered each section with a different tops mix, I then turned the whole thing over and felted it.

    Once felted and dry I cut it into 6 pieces (2 of each type) and stitched them into book covers
