The Sun,some new work and an Exhibition.

 Haven't we had some beautiful weather?  We nipped over to Hayle beach one morning for a walk and had the whole beach almost to ourselves, wonderful!

 See Godrevy lighthouse in the distance?

 The next day was beautiful too so we walked up Rosewall Hill, a lovely view down into St. Ives, you can just see the Island in the haze.
 When we reached the summit,somebody had beat us to it and left a flag!!!

 I have a new piece of work to show you, my Lighthouse Textile Art hanging and a new Pink Art House.I've used lots of different fabrics on the hanging with alot of handstitching and some real shells, oh and a piece of driftwood for hanging.

 My Art House was made from hand painted fabric, scraps of cheesecloth frayed and melted, beautiful vintage mother of pearl buttons, a lovely old key and I stamped some text on to a teabag and stitched it on with a scattering of beads.
Also last week I went to see my friend Carolyn at her and her friend Jo's fabulous exhibition.
 Actually I went twice because the first time I forgot to write a comment in the little book, handmade book too!

 There they are Carolyn on the right and Jo. One of Carolyns beautiful quilts on the wall behind.
The table between them was full of lovely goodies including art cards and some gorgeous beads, which I already have some of but bought some more anyway cos they are just soooo nice!

 Another of Carolyns beautiful quilts and below, one of her cards I bought.

 If you haven't seen Carolyns work or want to see more pictures of her exhibition visit her here
And Jo and her work can be found here

I hope you all made the most of the beautiful weather, I'm off to visit your blogs to see what you've been up to!

Buddy, the forgotten Bear.....

 Once upon a time (yesterday!) I was having a sort out of all my crafty bits and bobs, and I came across a box, I could see it right at the back of the cupboard.  I couldn't remember what was in it as I have so many boxes filled with all sorts of  odds and sods!

Inside the box was all my needlefelting bits, I haven't done any needlefelting for years. And there he was lying at the bottom of the box all forlorn, Buddy, my first attempt at a needlefelted bear
Looking at him now, he's not bad for a first attempt, he's only little, no more than 3 inches!!

So out he has come, on display on the dresser amongst the jars of buttons.
I'm glad i've found him and he is no longer the forgotten bear but he is now  Buddy the Button Keeper!!
I just thought I would share this little story with you.
I shall be back soon , I have a new doll to show you!
