Tiny treasures...




I've been busy making samples for inspiration and getting organised for a  'textile tokens' workshop this weekend at Hope and Elvis, I thought I'd share a few little things I've made with you...







I'll be back here soon with more to show you and some photos from the workshop....

Oh my ... so many beautiful creations!I just love everything you make. I so wish I still lived in the UK, so I could take one of your amazing workshops. Maybe one day, you might come to Canada and then I will be first in line.
Many hugs,

A beautiful selection of work and I love your use of little boxes and tins etc that may otherwise be thrown away.

Hi Christine it was truly a lovely day - I learnt so much from you - and think I must have spent all evening talking about the day I had with you and all the other stitches on your workshop - and I certainly spent all night dreaming of stitching . I have already started to use my stitching in practice and have been looking at colour in a different way . Thank you so much Nikki xxxxx

Hello Christine,
I follow your Instagram account but I cannot leave a comment since I do not have a mobile phone and cannot subscribe to the app. I love to see the beautiful photos of your artwork.

I just wanted to tell you that I wish you all the best and happiness for the coming baby. No doubt, you will create something beautiful for him/her with your creative fingers.

Je vous souhaite tout le bonheur du monde.

Hélène

Just Gorgeous!! I have found you through Pinterest and I am in awe of the simplistic beauty in each and every piece I have seen! I am continually inspired and wish I lived close enough to join a workshop. Til then....A workshop will be on my bucket list!😀
