How not to tag!

So I’m an idiot.

I’ve been using WordPress for years (with varying degrees of success) and have literally just learnt that the less tags you use the better…I was using the Tumblr mentality of ‘the more the merrier’ which doesn’t work, according to all the help forums I read it can count as tag spamming and actually hide your posts from everyone!

Who knew…

Number seven

I so don’t know why, but this always makes me smile. It’s a random paving slab in the middle of a field, but it’s a seven – which is of course a magic number. (or the field is #7!)

#NeverForget911

I may not be in America, but I remember watching the 9/11 attack – my mum said ‘watch this its serious’ there are moments I remember so vividly even though I was only 10. Blue sky as the names are read out at the Ground Zero 9/11 commemoration. #NeverForget911

Comments

I’ve literally just noticed the little check box when creating a post that says ‘Allow comments’ don’t know how I missed it….

Apologies

So, I haven’t posted anything for an age…lots has been happening…what with life surrounding Covid-19 I kinda had a mini breakdown and couldn’t cope with the thought of going online, but I’m planning to rectify that and try to post two or three times a week.

The Dormouse

DSC00136

Celebrating the 150th birthday of Alice, these quirky wall hangings make a great gift for the curious minded.

These Wall Mounted Animal Heads are handmade, using various felts and british standard padding. As the name suggests these Feltsidermy are created using mainly felt. Each head is filled with wadding and is backed onto a foam disc giving each head a nice backing board and will hang neatly onto the wall with a small loop on the back.

The Dormouse is complete with hand made artistic gold finish wire glasses.

All materials used are vegan friendly and kind to the environment, the felt itself is made from recycled plastic bottles.

Glow Neon

In October 2014 the RNIB (Royal National Institute ) hosted Glow Neon a fun run to where participants danced and walked their way around a 3km track covered in glowing neon paint to our live DJs at venues across the UK.

Glow raised vital funds which will have a real impact on the services we are able to offer blind and partially sighted people across the UK.

I printed fifty t-shirts for Glow Neon at Mile End Stadium and in just over half an hour had sold out raising £281.00!

Well, here it is the finished Re-mixed Dimensions collection. I’m so happy with these final pieces, there’re all very different but sit well together. Constructed textiles are amongst my favourites due to how tactile you can make them.

I have to give a hugh thank you to Catherine who modelled for me, she looks amazing.

EXPERIMENTAL ADORNMENT

DSC00199 DSC00197

After initial researching of all the various things I found influential for this project. I started playing with adornment of my own, using different weighted and textured materials and making each piece individually, decorating them by hand or with a sewing machine and arranging each piece onto a stand to create a silhouette  I like, then sewing all the various pieces together by hand, so that it may be worn on the body.
