Canberra here I come!

Almost ready now for a trip across the Tasman to the Creative Textile Show. I have been invited by Cecile from Unique Stitching.
Also pleased to see that examples from the workshops I will be delivering are being used as the 'header' for the website.

I have been developing a few new twists for the workshops, and these are just a sneak preview (some new some not):

Looking forward to the show, I hope there will be loads of great ideas, shopping and folk to get to know, and to see Canberra for the first time. The only connection I have to the city is a book which I was given as a child called 'The Monster Who Ate Canberra', does anyone else remember that one?

Prize Draw Winners for February and March.

As promised, the proof pages from 'Stitch, Fibre, Metal and Mixed Media' are gradually being converted into pieces and if you buy the book from me (directly or via Amazon), I will pop your name into a pot and draw one out for each month.
February's piece goes to Annette.

We are into April now, so am just choosing which page to work on next.
