The Shirt Collar Project

This is just a little glimpse of my completed collar for The Shirt Collar Project - a collaboration involving ten British female textile artists and the original idea of my pal, the lovely Kathleen of Murgatroyd and Bean fame. We were each given a vintage shirt collar and given free reign to re-create it. You can read more about the project at the A Group Gathering page and see glimpses of the other artist's work. I'm excited to see the final collars in all their glory and the different ways the artists have responded to them........

In bloom

Here's another little stitched sample I've made for inspiration at my next workshop...it's stitched onto the back of a tatty little piece of quilt which I've tea dyed - it's satisfying  to make something unloved and discarded bloom again.....
