Lots of fish tiles

I have been painting a lot of fishy tiles and dishes for galleries – most of these are for the brand new Glass By Design in Penarth near Cardiff.
The last picture is of lots of fish tiles destined for Custom House in Cardigan.

Colour Bird tiles

Some bird tiles destined for Greece – it was fun painting the Hoopoe, Bee-Eaters and Golden Oriole, so I have added them to the range.

A bit of sewing

I love sewing in my free time, and always have. But recently I have got into quilting. Here is my first quilt just finished – it will be on display at Picton Castle, Pembrokeshire, 19th March – 30th April in a mixed exhibition “Skilfully Handmade Creations”.
