I work part time at Hobbycraft and I'm really pleased to say that they have decided to sponsor me and one of my friends from work/Uni ! Check out her blog below...

All of the goodies will really help me so much with my final major project and the end of year degree show. I've gotten some gorgeous beads and loads of haberdashery products that I can't wait to start stitching with ! Check out some of the products on the website ... There's some great ideas and inspirations on there, that are really fun to make and do !

I'll keep you posted on my progress, I've got some ideas for how I'm going to use all of the products, so I best get stitching I think ! Xxx

Today I've been super busy researching and writing off to companies for sponsorship, I've already been lucky enough to be sponsored by Madeira and can't wait to send off for some of their gorgeous threads! But I've sent off to a few more places to see if they can help me with some lovely goodies ... Fingers crossed... I'll let you know if I here back from anyone.

First Post of 2013!

Happy New Year! Hope you guys had a lovely Christmas and new year! So as the first post of 2013, I thought that I'd keep you updated with some of the drawings I've been doing for my final major project - the Christmas break was very much a working holiday, where I kept on with my drawings for my F.M.P. From my previous posts you'll all know that my theme is the fusion between crystals and architecture. I've taken quite a geometric approach to my drawings - which is something I haven't really done before especially in the drawing stages. Hope you like them ...
