It's WOYWW time again and an opportunity provided by the lovely Julia at her Stamping Ground blog, to show the world what's on your work table .Well mine is taken up with the final piece of children's art work which I've just finished sewing together, with some difficulty manoeuvring it under my poor sewing machine. This is the third wall hanging and completes the project. The children made these doors using lots of braids and ribbons. Behind each door is a transferred picture, some are of the children and others contain pictures of people who we considered to have made a 'difference.' I'm looking forward to delivering it and seeing the childrens' faces! I'd better get ready for work, not many more days left now before the end of term. Have a Fab WOYWW and see you all next week x
Ever since I can remember, I have enjoyed dabbling with a variety of crafts. My earliest crafting memories are of spending hours doing 'corking' or 'french Knitting' at my grandmother's house, using a wooden cotton reel with four short nails tapped into it and endless tangles of coloured wool. I also have fond memories of those little knitting kits, that came in a container that was made of the same material as an egg box. Happy days!
My interests now, range from textiles to ceramics, with knitting,felting, sewing and card making in between. I've reached a stage where I feel I know a little about a lot of different crafts. I'm still striving to become a master of at least one!
My favourite craft adventures at the moment, include digital collaging using PSP Elements, rubber stamp making with my imagpac kit and getting to know my Craft Robo.
When not crafting or looking after my family, I work part-time as a teacher, supporting visually impaired children.I also teach ceramics in a primary school and do occasional art residencies in mainly primary and special schools. Phew! I didn't realise I was that busy.
