I'm an embroiderer and sometimes textile artist living in a pleasant South Coast seaside town. In my "middle years" I took City & Guilds Creative Embroidery and embroidery became my passion. I love fabric and fibres - best of all is the way I can change the appearance of a piece of cloth with just a few lengths of thread and some simple embroidery stitches. I like to experiment and then use the results to make three dimensional articles such as boxes, containers and textile figures. I have been an enthusiastic blogger in the "textiles corner" of the internet for the past five years, interacting with like-minded people all over the world.
