Im excited by these two Scottish women and professional crafts people / artists whose work I adore

Simone Lyon makes stunning ceramic works that include lizards, iguana and dragons.  I do own some of her work from over 20 years ago when she was first selling.

Wow, I like this feature! The work of these two artists is really lovely. I will have to click your links for a closer look. Thanks for sharing!

Beautiful artwork. I thought that iguana (or exotic lizard?) was real when I first clicked on your page.

Very cool. I especially love the felted pictures . . . amazing.

Those are lovely work. Amazing wool embroidery and the lizard is very realistic.

I never thought of "showcasing" my friends' and colleagues' work. That is a great idea - I will work on that... thanks!

We have a local artist who also works with fabric/fibres like the first of your pictures - they are quite fascinating.
Also just letting you know that I am set to be linked after you Helena and I'm going to contact my next in line now.

That lizard is ceramic? I thought it was real. Very realistic!

Hey, Thanks for organizing the blog around the world. I will be blogging right before you. :-)
