Birds, postcards and letters …

I tried working this piece into a hanging but the theme, journey, and the ideas I am using to represent this, leaned more easily towards a three-dimensional format. There will be little snippets of narrative to draw you in, embroidered postcards and birds. It`s definitely a work in progress!

Another piece I`m closer to finishing has poison bottles for it`s inspiration! The very beginning of this embroidery can be seen a few blogs back. I shall let you know when they are out and about and on show.

Sunny, sewing days …

Since a new lovely sewing machine arrived last Christmas for my daughter, Tallulah, I have had to `budge over` on my work table. Not quite as messy a worker as me, but definitely getting there! I now know where to check when my favourite threads disappear … Tallulah`s sewing box!

As for me, I`m working on a piece which has been quite a challenge. I have wanted to incorporate some of my 3D cups and saucers and also a little 2D embroidery for a while. Sometimes ideas don`t get fully developed until a couple of years later! What can I say, there is always another project waiting …

Here is a little glimpse.
