Be Creatively

Joined this FB group to inspire me to record more of what I do.  And, as an excuse to procrastinate on sorting and tidying the final room after our move up to the beautiful Midlands ;)


The latest colour prompt....




As my mother and I have been discussing artworks featuring hares, I immediately saw a hare in this palette.  And of course some FME had to feature :)




He is stitched using FME, the blobs of organza and rayon were added next, and then a splash of Inktense mixed with textile medium.  Poetic licence on his eye colour to fit the palette, and because my little Toby Ragdoll was sitting on the table next to me.

Frenchman in glasses

Remember my French Bulldog sporting reading glasses?

I am busy reworking him onto the flap of a messenger bag...


He is done in free motion embroidery with Neocolor and textile medium so that he is washable.

Watch this space for the finished item....

Sewing Space

I love my little sewing room in the UK, but I still miss my pretty blue room in Berlin!





A German friend's very honest comment upon visiting my British sewing room, 'It's very practical, but not as pretty as your Berlin sewing room.'  Gotta love that German frankness!
