Well, i told you it would be a productive day....i finished a sixth collection....hooray!
I also painted a canvas, the concept behind it is the pure abandon that comes from been the looser in a relationship....i have tried to express how it feels to give everything you have to someone, only for them to smash your world and leave you, thinking of what could've been and the awful emptiness they've left behind them....i've written very small feelings within the painting too, how they change from the beginning to the end of a relatioship....i'm sure you've all felt like this at some point??

Well, i'm trying hard to do some work, but after packaging about 2 billion cards (or so it seemed) for Knitting and Stitching show Harrogate yesterday it would now appear i'll have to make more, as i'm going to be at Northallerton Town Hall this Saturday afternoon with a stall of bags and jewellery. . . .
The friday after, i'll be at Worsall Village Hall from 7:30pm onwards with a full range of my work....it's a ladies night, so hopefully they'll want lots of lovely gifts i can supply them with in time for Christmas!! there is Thorntons chocolate company going, a nail bar, lingerie stand and a whole host of other stalls....tickets are £3-50 on the door....
These images are of current college work which are the travel journal designs, they include a front cover and three examples of the inside pages....i think they're coming along quite well....
the final collections will be individual within each design but they should all fit together as a complete set when all 4 are viewed together, i hope!
they will be named as follows....
- Propser's Diary
- Paradise Notebook
- Where will my Journey Lead Me?
- Bright Africa

well after a fun saturday night after waitressing, it was time yesterday to continue with the hard work....
again i visited Kim Tillyer http://witchmountain.wordpress.com/ and together we worked hard all day, me on college related travel journal designs and her on some really cute little purses, perfect for stocking fillers at Christmas i thought!!
i'm seeming to get more work done at Witchmountain than the rest of the week at college.... it can be very motivating to just sit in the peace and quiet with another designer and work away....
this is a view from Kim's kitchen window, i thought in this post i'd show you some examples of college work in working progress....some dye samples, final designs and how the front of my wardrobe is doubling as a place to store drawing sheets....

Over the weekend i exhibited some work at Guild Hall in York. Here are some images of my stand.... i learnt a lot for the experience and also gained some useful contacts for the future, but definately couldn't have done it without Kim Tillyer, who was a lifesaver, coming with me on the first day; casting an expert eye over how was best to set up and directing me to the Hall in the first place!
