Welcome to my blog

Welcome to Fresh on Folksy, a place for me to shout about all the wonderful and inspirational handmade goods from the creative makers selling on Folksy. There is no favouritism or any kick backs, it's simply things I find on Folksy that I like and would part money with. Some will be new goods and some will be older but all will have some element of creative genius.

Here's to all those makers, to all those who strive to create wondrous things from nothing, here's to all those who bring a little whimsy into our lives, they should be celebrated and commended.

I myself, peddle my wares on Folksy, you can find me lurking over at Ed's Place come over and say hello if you get a moment.

So as not to confuse anyone or mislead I would like to point out that I do not work for Folksy or have any affiliation with Folksy. I do what I do simply to promote the Folksy sellers and by definition Folksy itself. The views expressed on this blog are mine and mine alone.

Eastbourne Pier - Original Embroidered Textile Art Canvas

I think this piece by Gillian Bates is simply stunning. It's hard enough to have a beautifully loose style in traditional sketch (pen or pencil) but to achieve it in stitch takes some doing. It does make me wonder whether this was straight off the bat or there were several hundred attempts before this beauty arrived. No matter, the result is exquisite IMO.
