Profile Piece

Express Publication editor Marni Franks is doing a profile piece on me in a few issues time. It's very exciting. I had to take a decent photo for the profile pic, so I put some make up on, wore my latest creation (Solar Flare, available at ETSY ... plug, plug, self promotion !!!!
and set up a tripod to take some photos.
I don't take a very good photo, but this was the one I chose
What do you think? That's my loom in front of me (obviously) with a rose design I just completed (I'm pretending to stitch it for the photo) and just next to my elbow are some polymer clay pendants I varnished yesterday.Photos of those will go up at ETSY soon. And behind me are some of the many cupboards that house my craft supplies. I do a lot of work at this table.

I'm too tired to stitch at the moment. I've been battling insomnia for years. The doctor said I have to stop sleeping in the day time to make up for lost sleep at night. It's been a week now and my night time sleep still hasn't improved. I was awake at 3am this morning and had to get up at 4:30 despite the sleeping tablets the doctor gave me. I think I took them too early in the evening (though I didn't go to sleep until 9:30pm).

Ah, that's enough of my woes.

Keep creating everyone.


  1. It's lovely to see you! That's wonderful that the magazine is doing a piece about you...hope you put it on your blog so we can all see it.

  2. I think that's a lovely photo of you!

    Sorry to hear you are not sleeping well, hopefully it'll improve a bit soon and you can get back to stitching.
