stitching

I'll start with the very exciting news. The wonderful Kate at Bothy threads has created 4 cross stitch kits from my paintings. Here are 2 of them. It is such a thrill to see my work in this tactile form. They will be widely available very soon but are just in the final packaging stages. More details when I know them. Oh, and they will also be available on the brand new gallery website which is coming along very nicely and will be launched in about a month.


So what happened to August? Sorry for lack of posts. Thank you all for the comments and emails and sorry I haven't had the energy to reply.
The gallery was crazy busy for the last 6 weeks and since I haven't been very well for nearly a month now my fantastic family chipped in and did a superb job of running it resulting in an amazing month. Thank you thank you thank you to them. I am starting to feel normal again now (!) and contemplating entering the studio again. Sorry to all the people who are waiting for commissions. I have had many many emails asking about available originals. Right now I will have to point you in the direction of Baxters gallery, Dartmouth, Serena Hall Gallery, Southwold and Avalon Art in Marazion who all have just a few paintings available. I have no originals in my gallery or in the studio due to the busy Summer season but hard work is on the cards to amend that soon so please be patient.

I shall be back soon with more news but that is me for today. xxx

Those are soooooo cute. My Mum is a x-stitch machine, so I'm going to see if I can get her to make one up for me!

You know, cross stitch doesn't really float my boat (pardon the pun) but these are the nicest ones I've ever seen. Congrats - you'll be taking over the world soon I'm sure.

Glad you are feeling better
