Let's all go down the pub!

Now that I've finished the artwork for DebbeesCDs, I've got inspired by my latest project -  designs based on country pub signs.  No - I really don't go from pub to pub doing research - if I did, I would never get any parching done.  Anyhow, I only drink at Christmas! There are such great pub names out there that it was difficult choosing my first six.  I'm not reproducing the actual sign, just taking inspiration from the name....but I have drawn the line at  the 'Slug and Lettuce'   That's not a REAL pub!  I hope to have these on the website during the first week in November.

Barton-on-Sea Workshops.

The dates for 2012 are now up on the website and places on the workshops can now be booked.  For those of us who are not entirely enthusiastic about the Olympics, getting away for a whole day of parchment is going to be a necessity!

Debees CD's 'Fairies are Everywhere'

My first venture into digi-crafting - and I'm really having fun.  I was  thrilled when Debs and I got together to plan this CD and her enthusiasm has certainly swept me along.  I hope you like it when you see it at the NEC on stand G45 - Debs has pulled out all the stops to get it ready on time, and Carol has made some great samples from the art work.   Thank you ladies!!!

Sunday workshop at Helen's.

We had a very enjoyable and hard-working day at Holmebarn Crafts on Sunday. I provided a new pattern from my 'Wheels' pack - a pink Vespa-type scooter - and in the afternoon the ladies tackled my new 'Lace Stocking' pattern - a rather sexy christmas stocking!  Helen provided us all with lots of tea, coffee and cake and a very delicious lunch.  With the aid of SatNav I managed to find my own way there without getting lost - my first time driving on the motorway on my own - and even better, I got home safely!
