Busy making things

I have 3 craft fairs lined up for November, and I have no idea how much stuff I need to make. I may not sell anything, or I may sell loads. I am optomistically making as much stuff as possible and hope for the best!

I am taking part in a craft fair at Whipton Village Hall on Sunday 7th November, as part of the Exeter Autumn Festival from 2-4 pm

Handmade in Devon, Barnstable Pannier Market 22nd November 10-4.30

Budley Salterton Craft Fair, 29th November 10-1


Autumnal Dartmoor Scenes

The lovely late warm weather we have been having recently has led my family up to the moors for paddling in the river Lyd,  finding newts, climbing tors and getting lost! Whilst enjoying the sunshine I managed to get some sketches done and I have turned some of these into some lovely little A4 panels…………..

Ben and Meli’s front door

I have made 2 windows for the front door of  Ben and Amelia’s Victorian town house, though the door itself is from the 1930’s. The design brief for these windows was to allow lots of light though, so not too dark colours and they liked the idea of a simple abstract design.  I took my inspiration from the flow of water in a dartmoor stream and used blues greens and yellows to give a subtle colour scheme.  The results are very effective and although these windows were installed sometime ago  I only got to photograph them last week. I am glad I waited as the sun was streaming through the windows showing them in their best light.

I am a stained glass artist working in Exeter and a busy mum of 2; trying to carve a path through the tide of washing and children's toys that stands between me and making beautiful things.
