As part of their ‘Love, love me do ‘ valentine’s exhibition Frida and two of my stitch pictures will be exhibited throughout February 2014.
Thank you everyone who popped in to have a look, or to peer through the window at the music mann and take photos! an enormous thank you to everyone who took a little – or large! – creation away with them – i hope they continue to make you grin! Hopefully the art dolls and Professor Mercurio have settled into their new homes!
I will be updating etsy (Ruby Trinket) very soon with some of the jewellry and some new necklaces [ brooches, pictures and art dolls!
Back after a lovely holiday, ready and keen to dive back into working. The Fabrications exhibition went really well…most of the jewellry sold and these pictures…
now i am home i will update my etsy shop, Ruby Trinket, with more jewellry and pictures.
thank you to everyone who came to the exhibition and to those who took home one of my pieces and a huge thank you to Suzi and the Mermaid and Seagulls girls for exhibiting my work for me – huge smile to all!
Whilst waiting for the frame for ‘sometimes’ and to appease the sewing urges whilst i am working away on the bug catcher sculpture…i have begun another stitch picture…lots to do still, but here’s a quick preview of both…
i amworking on his head at the moment – but i don’t want to ruin the surprise by showing it yet! Lots and lots to do !!!!!!!!!!! But he’s getting there and is complaining that i should hurry up and start painting him because he has a mission to complete! So i better carry on….
The mermaids and seagulls girls invited me to join them in an exhibition …. please come and have a look!
I won’t be there as i am away in France at the time, but a few of my textiles and jewellry / bags and prints of my art dolls in card form will be there in
my stead… not many as i am still busy working on the sculptures and the new stitch picture…these pics are what will be there….
Just so you don’t worry that my fingers have been idle recently …a few pictures of what I am working on at the moment…
a new sculpture … the bug catcher, from one of my pen and ink illustrations … His leather funnels!
He’s lots of fun to do – but still disturbingly headless – lots to do!
And the new large stitch picture i am working on simultaneously…. the girls’s outfit, hat and long feather will be the only colour / fabric – the trees i have machine embroidered and am busy working into it by hand to give the effect almost of biro scribbling / sketching…once i have finished the trees i will add beadwork to the hat and long feather…
I have taken a time out from making tiny weapons for the latest art doll and thrown myself back into the stitches…these two new pieces appeared…
You drive me cuckoo!
Textiles, free hand machine sewing, hand sewing, bead work…in a white frame… 17 x 21 inches.
This is probably due to far too many hours sat making tiny arrows and going slowly mad with their fiddlieness! It is a textiles version of my pen and ink drawing – You make me cuckoo!
If you see anything on my web site that you want to buy – just send me an e-mail and I can put it in the etsy shop – Ruby Trinket – so you can buy it on line via pay pal or bank card and i can send it straight off to you – simples!
Jereme and i are having another exhibition / pop up shop at 67 the old high street, folkestone all this week – 17th – 24th december, with some new pieces and christmas goodies…including some of my bags, jewellry, the new art doll, xmas cards and more! Pop in and see us if you are about….and Merry Christmas everyone, i hope you all have a lovely christmas and 2012 is a great year for us all!
