Hi, I’m Bridgeen ,  welcome to my  (retired ) craft blog. From 2011 to 2014 I worked freelance on illustration and design projects that often took on a textile form – particularly embroidery designs and fabric patterns under the banner of Cherry & Cinnamon. 

A Clockwork Bridgeen

During this period as an artist I exhibited internationally with much of my  recent work  involving textiles and hand embroidered portraits.  And In 2013 I worked on a number of commissions including designing a collection of Derry/Londonderry heritage fabrics to celebrate the UK City of Culture 2013,  as well as creating a special commission for Australian singer Gotye, a logo for a local Arts organisation and even a book cover for a debut novel! You’ll find a lot of these projects showcased on this blog. 

My work has also been featured on these sites and magazines:
Mr X Stitch, Feeling Stitchy, The DMC blog, & Stitches ezine and website, Crafty Pod, and you might recognise me as regular project contributor to Crafty Magazine UK.
Cherry and Cinnamon press and featured in
 Although I no longer post to Cherry & Cinnamon I still lead a creative life and can be found on my personal blog here sharing book reviews , favourite artists and other items of interest. Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Great work & great blog…I already wasted an hour when I should be drawing on deadline reading and checking out links…Damn you internets!

  2. Bridgeen, the blog is looking well, just wanted to let you know, I nominated you for a Liebster Blog Award, there’s no pressure to take part if you don’t want to, but it’s a great way for smaller, arty blogs to get some good coverage and support each other, if you take a look at my blog, Goshdarnit Designs http://goshdarnitdesigns.blogspot.co.uk/ you can see what it’s all about :]

  3. Hi there I found your profile using Splinster.com. I am a documentary filmmaking student and will you be interested in being featured in a documentary about female artists in the UK?
