Eye to Eye Collective in Milton Keynes

Come along Saturday 15th May or Sunday 16th May to Eye to Eye Collective Art show at Bradwell Abbey Milton Keynes to see the Queen of Hearts. Entry is free and there are lots of talented artists with work for sale.
Please come and have a chat on my stand - StitchyWooWoo.
I am running a raffle for a doll with the proceeds going to Race for Life, Cancer Reseach.My daughter has coerced me into doing the race in Clapham Common in July so I must raise some sponsorship. Please note ; I will be walking - not running !!!!!
Anyway here is Queenie. I had great fun putting her together.

She is clay over cloth with a stuffed body. My kind husband made the base by tuning a great piece of wood. It had to be red of course. Her costume is made form brocade silks from Hong Kong in the most sumptuous colours and patterns. She is trimmed with antique metal lace and braid and also some beautiful handmade Torchon Lace from the early part of the 20th century. She has jewels of Swaroski crystals. And a star topped septre.
A really snotty Queen - 'of with their heads' , she shouts !
