Because I am so busy working on the new Curious Creatures and illustrations, and haven’t had the chance to post very often, I have made some brooches in the quieter moments to pop in my etsy shop as a way to say ”HELLO!!” to you all, and ”I am still working away!”
Over the next few weeks whilst I am making the new little people and scribbling away, I will continue to add some more Curious Creatures brooches, some Inky Fingers ones too, and, if i get a chance -(these little creatures can be quite mischevious or demanding)- some cards and mini prints…xxx

Now back after the holidays

Back after a lovely holiday, ready and keen to dive back into working. The Fabrications exhibition went really well…most of the jewellry sold and these pictures…

and the bags…

now i am home i will update my etsy shop, Ruby Trinket, with more jewellry and pictures.

thank you to everyone who came to the exhibition and to those who took home one of my pieces and a huge thank you to Suzi and the Mermaid and Seagulls girls for exhibiting  my work for me – huge smile to all!

working on another stitch picture…and the bug catcher still

Whilst waiting for the frame for ‘sometimes’ and to appease the sewing urges whilst i am working away on the bug catcher sculpture…i have begun another stitch picture…lots to do still, but here’s a quick preview of both…

i amworking on  his head at the moment – but i don’t want to ruin the surprise by showing it yet! Lots and lots to do !!!!!!!!!!! But he’s getting there and is complaining that i should hurry up and start painting him because he has a mission to complete! So i better carry on….

‘Sometimes’ – finished

i have finished the ‘sometimes’ picture -needs an iron and just waiting for the frame.

Fabrication Exhibition Folkestone 20th July- 1st August


The mermaids and seagulls girls invited me to join them in an exhibition …. please come and have a look!
I won’t be there as i am away in France at the time, but a few of my textiles and jewellry / bags and prints of my art dolls in card form will be there in

my stead… not many as i am still busy working on the sculptures and the new stitch picture…these pics are what will be there….


i have been doing some doodle sketching on the sewing machine….this is what happened … you are all and everything – 
i will also be adding some of the jewellry to my etsy shop.
so if you  are near to Folkestone at the end of july ….pop in! You will be very welcome and there will be some extremely delicious goodies definately worth seeing / buying by the other very talented and lovely girls!

The bug catcher and another stitch picture – both in progress!

Just so you don’t worry that my fingers have been idle recently …a few pictures of what I am working on at the moment…
a new sculpture … the bug catcher, from one of my pen and ink illustrations … His leather funnels!
He’s lots of fun to do – but still disturbingly headless – lots to do!

And the new large stitch picture i am working on simultaneously…. the girls’s outfit, hat and long feather will be the only colour / fabric – the trees i have machine embroidered and am busy working into it by hand to give the effect almost of biro scribbling / sketching…once i have finished the trees i will add beadwork to the hat and long feather…
