Craftydermy OUT NOW

I'm really pleased to have received my copy of Craftydermy, a new book by Cicada, which features my own project on Bear Head Brooches!

"Using sewing, crochet, knitting, paper mache, and in some cases just cutting and pasting, you can achieve the spirit of taxidermy without the morbid overtones. Combining the twin joys of craft and taxidermy, Craftydermy presents a cabinet of curiosities that will delight, amuse and inspire. Projects include a knitted fox stole, paper mache antlers, a crocheted moose head and a felted tiger rug."

Craftydermy is available from Amazon or from the brand new Craftydermy website

I embroidered this portrait of Monty, our much missed family dog, as a housewarming present for my parents. I kept it simple and hopefully captured his lovely character for them! I would be pleased to take commissions for more embroideries if anyone is looking to have a pooch or pet portrait done!

This week I had a try with some air drying clay. Seems like the perfect weather for this little bear!
