Breathing time....

I have had a very busy two weeks and I have a month before my next fair. Though this wont be a time to sit and do nothing. As my stock needs to built up for the Festive Season and also stock needs to be made for Snibston. 

My final year at college is also going to be a challenge. Its quite nerve racking to think how much work is left to do. We are also going to be exhibiting at the Fashion, Embroidery & Stitch at the NEC, Birmingham again next March. I have no idea to what ill be making this time, but I know it will be mostly hand stitched! Not my strongest subject! 

Here's a few pictures of my latest makes.....

Doing demonstrations for the lovely ladies at the Lutterworth Embroiders Guild on Polymer Clay buttons, Starting back college for my final year eek!, Starting to work with Snibston Discover Park in Leicestershire...... On top of events, workshops and keeping up with stock.
I was so delighted when Snibston Discovery Park got in touch with me. At first is was to supply them with a few of my ranges for there display cabinets. Though after going to see the lovely Andrea, I'm also going to be designing and making a product especially for Snibston. This is to relate to one of there exhibitions in there fashion department. Total excitement and my heads really buzzing!
