Work in Progress

This is work in progress on a quiltie in readiness for a swap for September with the group Unlimited Textiles. I know I am a bit previous but thought I would get ahead of the game. I am a very busy girl!

Finally I've made a bookmark for alis for our swap. I've been a bit behind with having work for uni and I've been on holiday! so here it is!

As well as the ongoing project for Unlimited Textiles for themed quilties, there is also a monthly swap of other projects. This month's was bookmarks. This is my first one which I named 'Fleur'. I made this for Laura and I will soon be adding the next one which I will make for Alison.

Quiltie swap.

These are my quilties to swap with Jan and Alis. They were for April but I got a bit behind! Our theme was India. I used sari material for the background and used decorated ribbons for the elephant's trappings and edge. On the other I used mainly sari fabric and couched down indian sari wool and shisha mirrors.

Stitch of the month!

As I am new to textiles Jan thought it would be a good idea to practice my hand stitching. Our group has to produce a creative piece each month using a chosen stitch. This month's was Cretan stitch, and this is my first ever attempt at the stitch!

This is my latest make! it's a bookmark that I've made for my mum for mothers day. I made it by layering paper and snips of thread with water soluble film and machined embroidery over the top. I then layered a sheer fabric which I distressed and finished it off with a machined cord and a handmade tassel. I love the flowers on this I think they are so pretty, and such lovely colours.

Hi Everyone!

This is my first ever blog! So forgive if it's not up to much! Anyway hopefully I can show off some of my work and see what you all think. Be kind though I'm new to the textile world!
This is a piece I made for a competition, where I was given threads and I had to use my imagination! I chose to make cords and couch them down. I love the bright colours.
