Hello fellow project space exhibitors. As COLLECT 2012 was all over in such a flash just though I would check in to make sure it was not all a dream!
Really good to meet you all and hope you all get interesting follow ups from our Project Space exhibition…. All the best, Lucy
Released the work off the loom on Tuesday 1st May… delivered to the Crafts Council on Wed 2nd May! studio feels a bit bare and exposed now!
Hello again, I am going to be in Edinburgh next week for the preview of this exhibition. I am showing four small pieces. Above is the textile work ‘Blessures’ and below is a collage ‘Scène’. This group show of miniature textiles happens every year, it’s a really good testing ground for new work.
Margarita Easy chair of Rough&Ready collection is ready for Project Space Collect.
Looking forward to the show!
Come and say Hello when you’re on the 2nd floor of Saatchi!

Fightng with tiredness .. Just nipped in for a break and my emails were as dull as dish water so here are a few snapshots of the preparations of my final and 5th Tumblingweed.
Only 4 days to go and I will certainly be burning the midnight oil.
Hope you are all good out there and looking forward to the exhibition ….. I am very excited and nervous and knackered!
Don’t forget to get your tickets!
Gosh this is hard!
How are you lot doing? I am finding this last leg really challenging. I am so tired and so not near finishing. I need to muster up the enrgy to burn the midnight oil but everything aches and I am having flashes of self doubt which I know is natural as I have been staring at the pieces for SO long.
I know I will get there but its a mix of feeling absoultely sick of the sight of my studio and sewing machine, a sadness that I am nearing the end and ALSO I feel strangely nervous.
Thinking of you all … I wish we could meet for coffee to spur each other on but sending my best wishes online and some FORCE to keep you all going!
Hello, my name is Philip Watson, and I am Maryrose Watson‘s husband. I thought it might be interesting to offer a partners perspective on the build up to showing at the project space at Collect 2012.
Maryrose and I are in nice position, where I am able to support her in her work by making the wooden frames that she wraps her yarn around. In thinking about this post, I tried to do a fancy timelapse-photo-thing to show the making process, but have been sadly let down by the technology. Anyway, here are the two lots of two seconds that I managed to get out of it:
Other than that, here are some (more reliable) photos of the equipment I used to make the frames, with samples and examples, etc. Prizes for those who can name all the tools!
