So I’ve finished the first batch of the stitched paper prints for Sunday Love in New York, they will be on their way later today.
I am now trying to make sure I have everything prepared for the Urban Arts Festival here in Amsterdam tomorrow. We’re going off on our holidays straight after the event! So it’s going to be quite chaotic, but I am really looking forward to it. I have taken a few photos of the work I am preparing to make on the day.
I will be soon making the journey from Amsterdam to Paris, we are heading to the South of France on a family holiday and Paris makes the perfect half way stop over. Granted arriving at the hotel late at night with two toddlers won’t be quite the romantic Parisian experience but at least I get to wake up over looking Le Seine which no one can grumble at.
It will be a week away from the computer, although I will be keeping my shop open, with just my pencil and sketch book, not forgetting toddler 1 and toddler 2 who will of course be taking up most of my time.
These are two new textiles canvases in my shop, I have taken a little diversion with my colour palette, I hope you like it.
I currently have a few of my textiles canvases (the ones photographed below) at a lovely little boutique called Sunday Love in Brooklyn New York. I am also suppling them with some new stitched prints similar to the umbrella piece below on the right. So if you’re in the neighbor hood (I wish I was) and fancy seeing my work ‘in the flesh’ so to speak pop on down.
Sunday love is full of vintage affordable finds, a real alladin’s cave of repurposed, funky creations.
Well the Sunday Market was really great, we managed to dodge the forecast rain storm, which only really begun as we all begun to pack up. It was wonderful to finally meet all my Etsy Dutch team mates and enjoy talking face to face with people about my work. I managed to fit everything in my Bakfiets, I really wish I had taken a photo, but of course I was running late. It looked a little precarious but hey this is Holland.
