Now that I’ve completed my 2 tapestries next up is @springfling . I’m using my left over yarn from my big tapestry to make little bookmarks woven by myself for you. I am looking forward to showing you my large tapestry I completed last month - the big reveal! It will be on my wall alongside other work. Please come to the lovely Dumfries and Galloway region of Scotland where I will be in the village of Thornhill studio 88 and see me weaving in my studio on my scaffold loom and enjoy my garden before you step into the house to see more work. #springfling #dumfriesandgalloway #openstudios #handmade #tapestry #tapestryweaversofinstagram #shepaintswithyarn ...

My studio will be open @springfling on the 25-27th May . I have been putting brochures into the library in Thornhill @friars_carse_hotel_dumfries and @bqahotel. Pick one up when you can. I can’t wait to show you how I weave on my scaffold loom. You can also have a try weaving on smaller looms with my help. Also I will be showing my latest work which took me nearly nine months to finish phew!
