Thanks to everyone who left a comment to enter my giveaway. I wrote each name on a slip of paper - and there were over seventy of you - thanks! I put slips of paper into a big bowl, turned my back and picked a name with my left hand and a name with my right. So the two people who are receiving a copy of 'You May Need To Disappear' are Velma B. and Mrs Bertimus. A nice thing, totally by chance - one of you lives in the UK and one of you does not! It so often works out that way, which is nice.
If you were hoping for a copy but sadly did not win - you know what I am going to say don't you - well, yes, there will be copies in my shop from this afternoon. This is a limited edition of 100.
I'll be updating my shop from about 2pm today. My update includes new embroidery and paintings. Another painting in my botanical series is 'a tangle of wildflowers'"
black gouache and indigo watercolour on heavy cartridge paper
You may have also spotted another new series in my shop - that is a series of tiny portraits.... these are indeed tiny figures - the paper size is just 10cm x 7cm. Below is no. 10 herself.

They will be in my shop tomorrow. Possibly one other brooch may appear. And of course I will have my new little book 'You May Need To Disappear' in the shop - and a small selection of paintings.
Tomorrow morning I will be choosing at random two names for my giveaway - there's still time right now to enter (see previous post), to win a copy of my new little book plus extras.

I have kept quiet about this one - until I had the first copy in my hand. But am now very pleased to share with you my forthcoming little poetry chapbook. 'You May Need To Disappear' is a small collection of eleven poems, plus fold-out artwork. A few of the poems have been previously published over at my blog nevering and all others are previously unpublished. The poems take you outside into the garden and beyond, with experimental voices telling stories and observing flowers, love and memory.
'You May Need To Disappear' will be out on Friday - in my Etsy shop with my new update.
However, I would like to offer not one but two copies as a giveaway. I will include a few extra-extra goodies with each copy! All you need to do is leave a comment here, please. Anyone is welcome to enter. Please make sure I can get in touch with you via your comment. Or email me if you prefer. You have only until Friday 9am (UK time). Two winners will be picked randomly and announced Friday morning.
