Looks like this year is set to be busy, busy! I am in the final editing stages now with the book which means I have a lot more time for creating! The book will be published later this year so I will keep you posted on that. I am really wanting to dedicate this year to creating new work in both embroidery and paint as these really are the two things that I enjoy the most! I felt really bogged down last year and a bit stressed so this year is about having creative fun, trying new things and experimenting!
I am currently having a sale in my etsy shop so if you would like to pick up a bargain before I start adding new work, there is now 25% off all items. Add coupon code NEWYEAR at checkout. I have also been busy updating my website and setting up a page on the Artists and Illustrators website to display my paintings and illustrations. I work in acrylics and watercolours but have just purchased some new Derwent watercolour pencils as I thought these would be great for nature illustrations and for designing purposes checkout my art blog on tumblr for the pictures of these. I am going to be keeping the painting and embroidery separate so this blog will from now on just be for embroidery related postings new work and tutorials etc.
