Embellished Flowers

(click on the image to enlarge)
This is the start of a new series of work preparing for an Exhibition
next year based on my 'Art To Embellishment'.
I am experimenting with combining my painting and embellishing.
Some of the images I have taken from photos and sketches
I took or drew in our garden and the gardens we visited this year.
I have still got to add the machine embroidery and the bead embroidery.
I love textures,
so I am enjoying using the different textile techniques.
See more embellishments on this and my website

Newmarket Art and Craft Show

On the way home from the Quilt Show we travel through
Newmarket and decided to go to the Art and Craft Show.
It's like the opposite to Chilford Quilt Show.
Contemporary and glossy artworks and gifts.
Lots to see and buy especially in the food halls!
The tasters were great.
Jenn had the biggest donut ever!
We went up to the top floor and visited
Artist in Residence Roz Lowe.
A ceramics artist, who makes original ceramic
garden worlds. They are like miniature fairy gardens.
I brought an empty pot with a miniature house and garden on it
to put some baby house leeks in.
Her creativity and energy is so wonderful.
Thank you Roz for sharing.
Roz doesn't have a website yet,
maybe one day.

Chilford Exhibition

Jenn and I took ourselves off to Chilford Vineyards
near Cambridge on Friday to visit the
Quilt Exhibition.
There were so many things to see and take in.
I especially liked these wallhangings.
A miss of me but I forgot to take down the makers name
so are putting it out there as a remembrance to
to take details of your favourites and
I like to celebrate the maker along with their websites etc.
If anyone knows the maker and details I would love the feedback.
