a bird and his nest

As promised, the bird to go with the nest.........I've nearly completed the piece now - I just have to put the backing on and decide on how the roll will fasten up and then I'll be able to show you the whole thing.

Some bits of news - I will have a stall at the Cotswold Vintage Fair on Saturday 24th August and also at the Selvedge Winter Fair on Friday 29th and Saturday 30th November - I'm very excited about this!
If any of you can make it to either of these, I'd love to see you so come by and say hello!

more stitching

Here's a few glimpses of my progress on the piece I started at the workshop in Cornwall. It's a long thin piece that will roll up and close when completed. The fabric I've used for the backing is a lovely silk from a vintage kimono which was very badly moth eaten when I bought it, so I didn't feel bad about cutting it up. I love using fabric from old clothing in my work. Of course, as I'm sure you've guessed, there will be a bird to go with that nest, birds seem to find their way in to most of my work!

Thank you for all the comments I receive here - its lovely to read them and I appreciate them all x

through my window

Hello, I'm back from a lovely time in Cornwall at Primmy and Jessie's workshop at Cowslip. You can see some photographs of the workshop on my facebook page - click on the link in the sidebar.  This is the piece I started there, there is still quite a bit more stitching to go, I'll share more with you as I go along.

the whole story....

The completed memory book - A walk in the woods, started at the last Primmy and Jessie Chorley workshop I went to in October.  I'm off to Cornwall tomorrow to attend another of Primmy and Jessie's  workshops at the weekend. Two days of sewing in the company of other creative souls in beautiful Cornwall, what more could you ask for? I'll show you what I get up to.
