Arts in the Ville

Once again over Labour Weekend my studio will be tidy and open to the public. Arts in the Ville is a celebration of local art and creativity. Studios are open, pop up galleries appear and trees are yarn bombed. I will be open all 3 days Sat, Sun, Mon from 10 - 4 so if you are in the area pop in and say Hi, even if it only to see how tidy my studio can be!!!

Rooster Auction

Tomorrow evening will see my patchwork rooster go up for auction alongside 37 other beautiful roosters. Money rasied from the auction will go to Starship childrens hospital.

My rooster is called Quentin. The fabric is just glued onto the mould with PVA glue, then a coat of varnish. He has a quilt wrapped around his base.
