Yesterday I spent most of the day playing with fabric and felt in the hope of making these into jewellery for a craft fair in a few weeks. I thought it would be a good way of using up all the odd bits of lovely fabrics and threads left over from my many experiments.

The photo above shows some of the examples done, these will then be cut up and embellished with beads, buttons and stitch.

Far more exciting than this though, was an email I received from Kyra Hicks who responded really swiftly to an email I sent to her. I was so excited, and did my usual loud squeal, fortunately for them, none of the children were at home so I had to telephone to share my excitement. Even more fantastic than this, as I was checking out her blog I found that an image of girl behind the mask was there, this of course was reason for more excitement and squealing .Thank you Kyra.

I remember many years ago reading a letter from you to the Embroidery magazine requesting information on afro caribbean artist for your research. At the time I had all intention to make contact but life got in the way. It is lovely that our paths have now crossed. I am really impressed by your work.
