Oh where does the time go??!! I cannot believe how long it is since my last blog post…since then we have had Christmas, put the house on the market, taken it off again, started building work, I have stitched a lot of commissions and been blown away by how well my work has sold at Made in Bradford on Avon, and been accepted as a member of the Society for Embroidered Work!
Pet portrait commissions are great fun to do, and have been winging their way around the world – flatteringly, most have gone to other artists.
…Bradford on Avon scenes sell well at the gallery, and some don’t make it beyond Instagram!
Mice, it seems, sell like hot cakes!
Wildlife…and the not so wild life…are still popular…(really helped with a recent thread recommendation)
I have a sneaky suspicion there are a number of plump, older ladies with poodles around – have made and sold several each of these designs.
I still love designing and making greetings cards, and they always do well…pocket-friendly mini art!
Other free motion appliqué too.
There have also been miscellaneous creations, including Christmas tree decorations, fabric ‘paper’ boats, cushions (and chair painting) and felt chefs!
I have also had the privilege of spending some time with an incredibly talented 11 year old, as we made a toy turtle, a baby chair cover and plenty of free motion embroidery!
