I'm very excited to announce that there are some WildCat Designs 'artefacts' on display at the recently-opened UK DIY exhibition. It's on at the Turnpike Gallery in Leigh, Greater Manchester and runs until the 25th of April 2009. It's part of a larger series of UK DIY events and projects taking place throughout 2009 - see for more information.

The exhibition is an exploration and celebration of modern British Craft and includes the work of many innovative UK and international makers as well as community projects. It also incorporates a hands-on element where visitors can get involved have a go at crafting themselves!

There are a couple of my creations in the 'techno-crafting' section, relating to work influenced by the iconography of 1908s video games :) You can probably guess that one of my Space Invaders numbers is present and correct!

February Fun

I'm not long back from a little trip up north to Stonehaven, partly to get away from it all, to catch up with a friend and also for its proximity to Aberdeen :)

On one particularly dreich day (no joke, it was raining cats & dogs!) I spent a happy half hour in a lovely craft shoppe in Stonehaven. Having seen some rather nice yarn in the window, my boyfriend knew it was inevitable that I would want to go in! I couldn't leave without having a good rummage and left with this little lot:

Crafting 365 Day 254: Craft goodies!

Additions to the ever-mounting stash, yay! :) The yarn is sooo soft and Rico Baby is a brand I haven't come across before - with some yummy colours in the aptly-named 'Lollipop' range. Just wish I'd had time to find at least one of the independent purveyors of yarn in the Granite City. Mind you, it's probably just as well since I have a bit of a problem walking out of such shops empty-handed!

For those of you who might fancy getting your mitts on some WildCat Designs handmade goodies, there's still time to enter my Prize Draw - plus, I've decided to extend the deadline to midnight (GMT) on Tuesday, 10th February 2009. What are you waiting for?!?
