Jolly Christmas Gifts and GIVEAWAY.

Hello fellow craftily creative types,
It seems that the Jolly Christmas Season 
is already upon us.

Blogging has been hard to keep up with at this
 jolly old time of year, along with me getting ready 
for my very exciting move to the 
beautiful old city of Winchester

But all the same I have of course Guerrilla Crafting
away working poor Nina Bernina to the bone.
But all is worth it.

I have currently been working on joining the
Urban Artisans at the
Birmingham Frankfurt Christmas Market.
Urban Artisan is  group of West Midlands based designers
selling everything from Soy Candles to graphic prints, jewellery and Textiles.

I am very happy to have been asked to join them
next week on their beautiful Christmas stall.

I have been working on more birdie themed fabric purses, 
covered diaries, tea and egg cosies and thought 
it would be great for me to share with you my Jolly crafty gifts.

I am very excited about these finding a place with Urban Artisan 
in our very beautiful Birmingham Frankfurt Christmas Market.

Continuing with my JOLLY theme i would like to give away 
one of my Blue Tit brooches that is in the picture above.

Blue Tit Brooch.

Lost In Lace

This last week saw the opening of the 
at the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery

"Lost in Lace will see 20 leading international artists take over the Gas Hall at Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery this Winter. Running 29th October 2011 to 19th February 2012, this exhibition will explore the relationship between textiles – specifically lace – and space through a series of dramatic and ambitious new site-sensitive installations."
Crafts Council

I have been patently waiting for this
 to arrive for the last two months.

I am surprisingly lost for words about 
Lost In lace.
So instead i am just going to share the photos i took
when i went to visit this wonder myself

The photographs by no means show the amazing 
scale and detail of these pieces or how they
 react with the space.

I recommend that if you are able to visit this exhibition 
please go.
You can find out more about the exhibition and the artists
