Bracelets, bikes and glow worms

Hello everyone.

I’m sorry I’ve not been blogging much recently, but I have had a week of bracelet making and marketing. I am not what you would call a natural self promoter – in fact I’d be quite happy if I never had to sell anything, but life doesn’t really work like that, shame!

What do you think of the new bracelets? Or should I call them Cuffs? I have seen that term in magazines, but it sounds a little too crime and punishment to me. They’ll be on the website soon, priced at £19. Or you can order one now in the colour scheme of your choice – just email me.

So you could say the bracelet making is going better than the marketing. I’ve been in touch with shops and galleries, and my Facebook page is attracting a few fans, which is quite exciting, but I’ve not generated many sales yet. All advice gratefully received!

In other news I went to my first motorbike meet this week – in Twyning, where there were hundreds of bikes and some pretty funky ones too – a freaky Hayabusa and some great old classic 70s skinny tyres bikes being the highlight. Bloody expensive pint though! And I’ve been on our annual glow worm hunt! Tis the season for the little worms to shine out and attract some lovin’, and they were glowing beautifully on Bredon Hill on a soggy Wednesday night last week.

Have a great weekend!

blue mood

Been quite bored this week – can’t settle to anything. Do you know what I mean, when you just aren’t in the mood for anything? Maybe its the weather – the grey skies are so disappointing, and then when the sun comes out I can’t get out there – need an extra long extension lead for my sewing machine!

Have been making textile bracelets today, in a similar vein to my pictures, but wearable, if you see what I mean. Blue has been the colour this morning...
Watching Gavin and Stacey on dvd – so funny!

New embroideries for sale!

Congratulations Spain! They were my team in my little sweepstake with Andy, and now I get taken out for dinner! Lovely!

I have some exciting news to report – I have an exhibition of my embroidery at the Number 8 Arts Centre in Pershore! Not until next summer, but I am very excited nevertheless.

Today I will be putting online and up for sale some of my new embroideries, so take another look around my website.

I am back from our annual trip to the Circuit de Catalunya and the Moto GP in Barcelona.
Check out me and Bradley Smith! We did the pit lane walk on Friday and saw all the riders, bikes and garages. Very exciting! And here are the boys with our flag, which sadly didn’t get us on the telly.

Me and Bradley Smith - Tony, Todd, Kurt, Sid, Andy and Cole

The weather was lovely, the city beautiful and the tapas delicious – a good time was had by all. The racing wasn’t bad either, although the GP was disappointing after last year’s epic Rossi-Lorenzo battle.

Time to crack on with work now. I have a few website changes planned and lots of new pictures to add, so watch this space. I’ll be back with more when I’ve got it all sorted.

And do let me know what you think – there’s a guest book on the website.
