New book sneak peek

Just got the proofs of my next book back from the printer so I think I would share a sneaky peek with you. I hope you like it - I have been working so intensely on it it is hard to know quite how I feel!

Creative Cardiff

Yesterday I was lucky enough to spend the day workshopping with the lovely ladies of Cardiff. The train journey that started at 5.30am and was full of stag and hen dos as well as people off to the rugby who all started drinking at about 7.00 was slightly less enjoyable but the day definitely improved!
I just wanted to share a couple of pictures of the stunning in store displays that the John Lewis team deserve a medal, if these weren't going to persuade people how desirable handknits could be I don't know what would.

I am in the final phase of getting my next book to print and to be honest there just aren't enough hours in the day so today I am just adding a few more nice pictures of New York (all by M Armstrong again!)

I am off to Libertys tomorrow as part of Wool Week and will hopefully have some pictures for you after. I am also hoping to have some more pictures of my photo shoot by then to show you.

Spent the day working on a photo shoot for my next self published book. Its also so exciting to see the pieces on the models but also so nerve racking back for more again tomorrow!

Home sweet home

Finally made it home from New York. I was supposed to have a workshop at the Rowan mill this weekend and my apologies go out to anyway who was booked on the course I was really looking forward to it.
I thought I would start showing you a few pictures taken from my trip.
Firstly I want to thoroughly recommend the 'highlines' to anyone visiting New York. It was built in the 1930's as a freight railway and was last used in the 1980's. After this nature took her hold on the railroads above the streets of the city. The highlines were then going to be demolished but Friends of the Highlines' was formed and rescued the space to become a public park.
The first picture shows a beautiful sculptured designed for birds to live in and feed from.
