Dropping the Yarn Bomb!

Its not all about glass in my little crafty world, I also love to attend Make Do and Mend with my other crafty friends. Make Do and Mend is a lovely group of talented crafty women in Exeter who meet twice a month to make things, learn new things and laugh, there is lots of laughing!

Joe set the group up 2 years ago and as a second birthday celebration we thought we would yarn bomb Exeter High Street and some prominent sculptural landmarks in the city! Much furious scarf knitting ensued and the result was a scarf on every tree from Boots to Urban Outfitters, a saddle for the Pheonix Art Centre’s unicorn sculpture and some scarfs for various other sculptures around and about! What fun we had, it felt a bit naughty and deliciously good fun.

Luckily there were a lot of half naked students dressed in capes and pants and little else which distracted from our activities marvellously! HAPPY 2ND BIRTHDAY MAKE DO AND MEND, lets hope we brought a smile to the high street shoppers!

Going down Memory Lane

When my old school friend Wendy asked me to commission a special piece for her Mum’s birthday I was only to happy to oblige, especially having discussed the subject, Happisburgh on the Norfolk coast. This fast disappearing village was where I spent many a happy childhood day on the beach and as a teenager camping on the cliffs (I believe the campsite has all but disappeared now, reclaimed by the sea). The lighthouse thankfully still very much on dry land, keeping ships safe from the cliffs and sand banks and it is this landmark that I turned into a panel.

They were very pleased with it and said, “….it looks fabulous! Hopefully mum will be over the moon…Thanks everso much for doing this, its really special.”


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.
