I spent the winter weaving pieces for my new collection, now piecing, placing & stitching.
Although I miss the sun, the rubbish weather at the moment is helping me to stay focused on my practice and not to go skipping around outside. This collection to be first shown in October 19
is considered and delicate, it has a narrative. Although this is my story and journey, it is to be shared in the hope of other's sharing theirs, to create a community.

Back to creating, making and organising my practice after a month off. I have driven three thousand miles through France to Amsterdam collecting treasure, exploring, researching textiles and visiting friends.
The two main areas of my practice I am working on at the moment are a collection to sit next to a previous body of work 'Not From The Stork' to be exhibited in the Textile Galleries at the Knit & Stitch shows in London, Dublin and Harrogate this year and a new collaboration with @Trouble_at_mill design house and independent fashion store. A collaboration inspired by slow fashion principles to recreate beautiful handmade clothing, garments to be worn and hung available to buy and made on the premises.
