Mr and Mrs Naughty Cat ...

There they are, brother and sister actually, and butter wouldn't melt!


Now immortalised by my box of German pencils and my sensetive hand ...


I often fill in 'flashed' eyes as I did here for Mr Cat making his match more with his sisters in this lovely group shot.

A new rat softie pattern ....

Following on from the creation of pink mouse for a very special lady, it was time to recreate some awesome rats ...


A pink-eyed-white an agouti hooded-rat ...


This year we remember the rescue rats Smudge and Pepsi :-)

Artwey at The Engine Room

Two members of Artwey are currently showing their work at The Engine Room, Poundbury...


One of them is me! And you can see our Topsy cat smiling down as you eat your lunch!


My mixed media pieces look really cool on the natural brick walls...


Roar! Behold the Lion of Judah!


Let me know if you pop in to visit!


I love mirrors and have included quite a few ...


And one frame, Guard your heart!


And I'm hoping to spread a little joy too!


Here's a fresh and figurative piece, a red squirrel, executed with paint and oil pastels and a little pencil.


And here's a scene from The Sea Life Centre also created using paint and pastel.

Creative family time ...

Sew proud of these scissor-sisters!


They have really got the bug this time! Quite probably from me. It's been really exciting watching things develop and the dining room fill with creation!


These teddies are really impressive! 


Daisy also made a fantastic sock rabbit too.

Wee pink mouse

This small pink mouse is for a very special lady, and is based on my hamster pattern with a few simple changes. 


I'm really pleased with her!

Canvas and sensitivity ....

Sometimes you just have to send someone a hug from god ....


I had fun with collage, acrylic paint and pastels on box canvas and sent this off to a friend eager to here and see ...

And in return, they blessed my day!

5 minute make - steampunk flower

This is made from two folded strips of paisley fabric offcuts, a piece of copper vinyl, and a lovely old shank-button. 

The button hides the ends of the gathered fabric, and this is all ready to be used for brooch or other embellishment!

I've never made fabric flowers before but was very inspired after a romp through my updated Pinterest App!
