I was hoping in this all singing, all dancing, linked up world that I would somehow be able to link up my WordPress blog with my Instagram account, but unfortunately not to be 😦 At least not as yet.
So for the meantime you can find my latest pictures on instagram
and also on my facebook page

Ever since I heard of it I have wanted to have a go at yarnbombing. So when The Fit O’ The Toon Community Association in Arbroath decided to have a go at doing some at Danger Point, I join them.
It’s a lot of creative fun getting together once a week with a group of lovely creative people, who chose the name the Wooly Workers.
The bombing targets are the restored drying green poles, lampposts, gateways and other street furniture in the immediate area. The full installation is due to go up at the end of May and will stay in place for a couple of weeks.
There are lots of inspired works already completed or in progress. We now have a facebook group where you can catch up on progress and the latest news of the installation of the bombing! https://www.facebook.com/woollyworkers/

I will be exhibiting and delivering workshops at Hallgreen Castle, Inverbervie during NEOS. More details to follow. In meantime see NEOS website for more details http://www.northeastopenstudios.co.uk/neos-2017/
Sam Baxter – sambaxterart – has very kindly sent me these photographs of my work from the above event. Thanks for all the hard work you put into this event Sam!
Big huge thanks to all of you in the Fun A Day Dundee team for all the hard work you put into this event. It was an absolute pleasure to take part.
Here are a few more photographs of the fun I had. Enjoy!
Well, I’m a crochet tutor! So the first thing I saw when I looked at this shed snakeskin was a beautiful lacy crochet pattern. Don’t know quite how it would turn out or what I might use it for. Maybe give this a try out sometime and see if it can be made into a working pattern. Probably would need a more delicate name than Boa’s Belly Stitch though!
I really like this idea – creating just for the fun of it.
Who knows where it might lead 🙂
Here are some of my works for sale at Hallgreen Castle, Inverbervie, NEOS venue 130.

That was a wonderful weekend, sun was shining, and people were out and about. The atmosphere at Trafalgar house was lovely and relaxed. Fellow Artists Liz Petrie, Jilly Henderson, Neil Paterson, Karen Elliot, Maralyn Reid-Wood were delightful company. Thanks to everyone for your generosity. I also came away from the weekend with a new family member who now eats and sleeps for Scotland and is a right loving fur baby! I have named him Happy, cos he is!

I am currently working on a wall hanging. I am working freeform crochet onto a framework of withies and with a hessian backdrop. I will be posting more details as it progresses.
