Christmas Cirque de Kitty

Here we have a lovely Kitty that was made for a surprise xmas present, she was a joy to make and I used antique french pom pom trimmings for her collar.

I hope her new mom loved her, as much as I did  :)

Kitties can be on wheels too ! :)

Just a little message to say that cats can be made on wheels too, although i love making all my animals on wheels, I do think sometimes that the kitties get forgotten about, so I thought i would remind yee all --just in case :)

Christmas Craft Fayre in Belper Derbyshire.....

Hello all,

here are the details for the final craft fayre that I will be doing this year, as most of you know Linda and I decided that we were not going to continue with the quirky fayres due to separate commitments and ideas for our own work. Linda will be offering lovely workshops from her beautiful home in derbyshire in 2014 and I will be doing them from my chapel in the forest of dean glos. She will also be hosting special private and special selling events from her home too and I will host specialist shows from my chapel--  I will post details as soon as I have them from Linda, and obviously I will post my own timetable of workshops etc, available for next year very soon ;)

This craft show will be held in Belper derbyshire, at the lovely Number 28 art deco hall in the marketplace, it is free admission and all are welcome. It will have a few familiar faces and lots of tea and cake, alot of local artists too. As always I have Eddie Glew, famous from his stints on the Kirstie Alsopp programmes on Channel 4 . I hope you can join myself and my friends for a very christmassy and fun day, with alot of handmade top quality xmas bargains :)

Blessings to you all,

I hope to see you there soon !
