Happy Monday Frogstitchies!
You all know Miss Froggy - she’s been what might be grandly termed the ‘brand image’ of Frogstitch since I first drew her in the 1980s, and she reappeared, looking as young as ever, when I started this page two years ago.
However, .....
One of the many thoughts I’ve been mulling since the event I did last week, is that maybe it’s time for Miss Froggy to retire?
I spend so long explaining to folk that Frogstitch was ME ....not some strange new they’d never heard of! And I’m wondering whether this is the moment for a change of name, to simply be Sue Spence - Textile Artist.
I would really appreciate your feedback on the idea if you’ve a moment?
Meanwhile, I’m off out to the Garden Centre with my daughter...playtime!!
Have a good day 💚🐸💚

Received the most beautifully stitched letter 'E' and a postcard of Sue's amazing Jane Austin piece. The quality of the work is fabulous. Highly recommend her work.

I have just received my beautiful brooch and I absolutely love it. The quality of the work is superb. It looked stunning online and is even more so in real life.
Having seen first hand Sue's ...lovely workmanship when I received my brooch I had no hesitation in commissioning a further piece from her. To say that I am delighted with my finished Sherlock artwork is an understatement. Sue somehow managed to take what I had visualised in my head and transfer it perfectly onto canvas. The finished piece is utterly stunning. See More

Beautiful brooch I love it so much. It truly is a tiny work of art x

Quiet day today, relaxing by finishing off the tiny tree I was making yesterday at Textiles East Fair. First French knot blossom going in 🌸

Visiting me today at Textiles East Fair was the lovely Liz Wells, who is a fellow member of Handcrafted Uniquely Community. Liz is a hugely talented artist (check out her work at EV Wells Art), and has been a supportive online friend for ages, so it was very special to meet her and her mum in person today.
Liz was the lucky winner of my ‘birthday present’ last week, and here she is holding her embroidered initial 💚🐸💚

Frogstitch had its very first public appearance today at Textiles East Fair.
The photo of me at my post was kindly taken by the lovely Liz of EV Wells Art (of whom more in next post 💚).
I’ll be there again tomorrow, from 10 till 4, at Swavesey College, Cambridgeshire 🐸

Caught the final rays of winter sunshine in the garden to capture sparkles on the organza in this hoop.
This is the latest new thing that will be coming with me tomorrow to Textiles East Fair 💙
I’d love to see you there if you live near Swavesey, Cambridgeshire 💚🐸💚

Monday has been about Wildlife Initial ACEOs, embellishing Romeo and Juliet, and a trip into town - Market Day in St Ives (Cambs).

Happy Sunday everyone! I hope you have nice things to do 💚
Yesterday’s preparations for the fast-approaching Textiles East Fair included transforming this lovely vintage cloth I was given by Debbie George Painter last year. My logo was screen printed at a workshop with Fiona at Particle Press in May. I must say I’m rather pleased by their marriage!!
