Newsletter from July 24th

Hi Everyone!

Yesterday I quickly whipped up this textiles piece:

Work in Progress

It doesn't look like much at the moment but it's based on this doodle:

Doodle for fairyland

Which in turn is based on Catherynne M Valente's gorgeous and whimsical online novel "The Girl who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of her own Making". I may have mentioned it once or twice! If you want to read (or listen) you can find it here:

And you can find other people's craft and artwork based on it here:


And if you haven't had enough whimsy already then please check out my fairytale restaurant!

I was set a challenge to write a restaurant review but I figured it would be more fun to make one up.


There won't be a newsletter next week as I'll be busy with non-textiles/craft related stuff, so I'll catch you in two weeks instead.

If anyone is visiting Silverton Street Market on the 1st of August then some of my larger textiles pieces will be displayed in the Methodist chapel (at the top of the street). I won't be there myself unfortunately.


Have a great weekend!

Happy Crafting!
