This is the 3rd Grow Your Blog hop hosted by Vicki from Two Bags Full.
For those of you visiting for the first time, Welcome to my part of the world. My name is Judy Cooper. I am a retired primary school teacher who now creates one-of-a-kind textile / fibre art. My complete bio can be found HERE and my artist statement HERE.
I have received awards for my work and several pieces belong to the City of St. John's, NL and to the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador. The Greeting Cards on my web site, show images of textile art that I have created. More images of my work can be found HERE. My latest large piece is pictured below.
At the moment, I am creating fibre art pendants and some new Shimmer Ornaments (scroll to the previous post).
Besides having a place to show my art and some of the techniques I use, I often write about other artist's work and link to their web sites. One of the other things I like to do is find tutorials and patterns for all kinds of textile / fibre art (usually freebies). Since 2009, I have blogged about a lot of interesting 'stuff". Please come back, grab a cup of something and explore my blog. I guarantee, you won't be disappointed ( even if I do say so myself - GRIN )!!
I am also going to have my first Give Away and I will post anywhere in the world! You don't have to be a follower to participate (it would be nice if you did). Just leave a comment on this post. Make sure I can contact you if you win.
My gift to you will be two of my shimmer ornaments. Deadline to enter will be February 14th and the draw will be on the 15th. The winner will be posted on my blog. I will also contact the winner for mailing instructions.
Enjoy the blog hop!
