Well I have taken the plunge and am writing my first post on my first blogg. I've never done this before and am not quite sure what I am doing so any encouragement or advice would be gratefully received!!
I am a retired Primary school teacher living on top of the Yorkshire Wolds in the UK. I had to leave teaching because of health problems and have since started a second career as an artist. My main occupation is embroidery, designing and working to commission, persuing my own more contemporary mixed media work and working as a volunteer 'Broderer' at York Minster one day a week.
I also dabble in other things such as doll making, stained glass, and botannical art.
