Sock Things

After a prolonged curiosity with sock creatures, I downloaded a set of instructions by Nicky Gibson. She runs a "Making Things Club" at I want to go! I've fashioned my own sock cats though...until I can have a real one!

R.I.P Woolies!

Finally a few pictures of my work in one of the Art Tanks on Ward Rd, Dundee. Each Tank (there's 5) contains Art which is then changed every 6 weeks. From left to right: Hand-embroideries depicting "extinct" UK shops: "William Low (1868 - 1994)"; "Littlewoods (1923 - 2004)"; Woolworths (1909 - 2009).

Woolies is hanging on in cyberspace...they even have a Twitter!

The Art tanks website is coming soon.

Peanut Butter & Chocolate Cupcakes

Here's some wee cakes inspired by Reeses Peices...the icing is chocolate and peanut buttery! I'm going to start recording my cake-making again. I'll add a gallery of my previous cakey art...hopefully to inspire me with the upcoming cake-expo at DOJ.

Met with Jenny Brownrigg and Laura Simpson from DOJ exhibs this morning. It looks like my plans for a small cake expo could become bigger than i'd first expected!

With an emphasis on domestic craft as art, they suggested I look at Merlyn Riggs, Martha Rosler and Ebba Redman, to add further "layers" to the exhibition cake. Ebba's graduating this year, and has a blog. As I do, she loves to crochet!

This event will be taking place december 2009. More te come!

Art Tanks

Great fun installing work at No1's pub for the Art Tanks show...even got a wee picture in the local rag...
