Let’s draw on the iPad.

I did a small drawing and added it in a cartoon to my FB page, and once again, I received hundreds of requests for a class.I’ve filmed a small introduction to see if anyone is interested in learning the wonders of drawing in the iPad.There are lots of classes you can do, and I’ve sampled…

Aurifil Artisans – August Challenge.

I teach Textile Art, but like most artists, my inspiration comes from the environment and situations I find myself in.This year has disrupted everyone’s lives.

The stages of my Bayeux.

I’ve managed to catch up with many of my other projects, now I can concentrate on the Bayeux. I try to put in six or seven hours a day of work, but I’m not doing the 4.00 am starts because it’s winter. I prefer doing that in summer. The days are so short and the…

My blog has been resting.

Thirteen weeks down and counting.Thirteen weeks home and in complete isolation for 3/4 of that time.Yes, everyone else is in the same situation, and life has changed immeasurably for us all. In the future, dates will be measured by “During the time of the pandemic.”You try to be upbeat, but sometimes even that state of…
