Autumn 2015
Happy Autumn!
Hello readers, hope you've had a good Summer! I've had a great time swimming in the sea and exploring the downs (as you can see by my new designs!) I'm taking part in events and commissions in all sorts of places at the moment. Interested? Read on…

Big Hoot
The Big Hoot
As you might know, I painted a space-themed design onto a giant owl sculpture in the name of charity. My design, "One Giant Hoot for Owl-kind", joined over 80 other giant birds across Birmingham this Summer and there's still time to see them if you're quick. The outdoor exhibition is on till the 27th September, when they will be packed up and auctioned off in aid of Birmingham Children's Hospital. If you can't see the owls in the flesh don't fear, check out The Big Hoot's Twitter for lots of pictures and their shop to buy owl merchandise. Twwoo!

Out + Keep
Some time ago, I was approached by Cat at Cut Out + Keep who do something called Superstar Sundays, where they interview designers/makers/artists after asking them to create their own version of Crafterella, the blog mascot. Crafterella is at least part cat and mine is no exception, although she is a superhero saving the world from craft project catastrophes too!

Lewes Exhibition
I've got a small display of my artwork including originals, prints and cards in the windows of Lewes Framers, in the picturesque Sussex town. My work will be on show and sale from mid September until Bonfire Night. Lewes is one of my favourite bits of the local area and has a wonderful Victorian outdoor pool called Pells Pools. It's inspired me to create a new piece called "Lido Time", which will be on display (and is also available in my Etsy / NOTHS shops too!)

Speaking of shopping I've been busy revamping my Etsy shop and filling it with lots of goodies. Luckily for me my talented sister Emma is an expert cross stitch pattern maker and she's been amending some of my designs to make into printable patterns that you can stitch yourself. If you're feeling crafty check out the Christmas Reindeer, the ever-popular Flight of Fancy, and new arrivals: a bunch of Meow Stitch patterns.

As a thank you for being part of my newsletter, I'm giving all subscribers 10% off my products in my Etsy Shop until the end of October. Just enterAUTUMNNEWS when you place your order.
