I’m starting off 2020 with a post, and hoping to continue with regularity. As you probably know, you can catch up with me on Instagram (button in menu at the top of the page). But the blog is the place for longer pieces, exploring ideas and making connections. I’ve been away so long, that there is a new format to learn. Fingers crossed I can still do this!
I’m heading off to my textile retreat in under two weeks and one of the tasks is to share three highlights of the year. I’ve covered my first highlight, the Gallery 121 show in May here. A second highlight was having my work featured in two different publications. I was thrilled to have both my sketches and rug hooking in Karen Miller’s Eyes Open to the World, a wonderful collection of hooked pieces inspired by travelling. In this past issue of A Needle Pulling Thread, my ‘self-portrait’ Red Shoes, was featured in the Artist Review section. Thank you to the editors of both publications for noticing my work and wanting to share it.
Congratulations…the shoes you hooked are amazing.
Thank you< Peggy!
How wonderful to have your work included in book! So we’ll deserved!
I’ve just discovered this blog. You are so talented and inspiring!
Thanks for the comment! I am not posting nearly as much as I once did, but hope to start back a bit more regularly.
I’m fascinated with your work and the sheer volume you’ve produced. I’d love for you to write about how you started your journey. Thanks.
Thanks for your interest Eleanor! I’m hoping to post more this year. /Christine
I’ve just spent the last few weeks exploring and reading your blog all the way back to the beginning!
Love. Love. Love.
I now want to learn how to needle hook and I look at those leather coats in my closet with fresh eyes! Lol!
