Woolfest is almost here...

hope it's in your diary for 28th and 20th June! it's certainly in mine!

suddenly it's rather close...and after months of thinking and planning I'm in the final preparation stage...and rather scarily laid back... which could mean

a) I am completely ready (ha ha ha ha ha!)
b) I'm so tired I'm actually asleep or 
c) any minute now there is going to be one huge panic and lots of midnight oil being burnt...

actually I have been working verry hard, sewing at all opportunities eg handsewing brooches on long car journeys, making for Woolfest and ArtFest, whilst taking artwork to 2 new galleries, doing applications for 2 exhibitions (which means making work too)...I often wonder how I ever found time to go 'out to work to a proper job' as this one is more than full time! but so enjoyable...I had a lovely workshop yesterday which just adds to the pleasure!

work in progress...cutting, using my 'new best friend' my embellisher, pinning, sewing...
and here's a little taste of what will be on my stall...and I may be a little quiet here for a wee while so please 'bear with'... I will be back!







 







maybe I'll see some of you there...do hope so...
have a great week

You have made some beautiful gorgeous bags there Emma, and I love the bright glowing flowers too - well done and I hope everything goes really well for you after all your hard ( but enjoyable) work!
I wish it were possible for me to be there!

Wow, love those bags, so Emmie/Emma. Am counting the days to Woolfest. I've been collecting £2 coins over the past year so I can undertake some guilt free shopping. See you at Cockermouth.
