bit of a regal look to this one, black silk and a gorgeous gold silk with fine woven stripe, all hand embroidered.  Though they are actually a less royal sounding Will and Lizzie!

geometric

this beautiful woven silk has travelled with me from Delhi and kept me busy in Rajasthan, Goa, London and Chester. It’s like a silk colour chart, incredible tones and textures. Sadly couldn’t sew on the plane though due to scissor and needle prohibition!

interlude

well it is ages since I posted anything but all my pre-Christmas makes were under wraps for obvious reasons! This is a silk cushion with hand and machine embroidery for a talented violinist.

caboodle!

I made these zipped caboodle bags to fit a nappy, pack of wipes and change of clothes. Saves the changing bag rummage!

flycatcher

I have learnt what a spotted flycatcher is! The power of google… I was asked to make this cushion for a joint 70th birthday, with this bird, poppies and cornflowers. Enjoyed using silk paints as well as embroidery and I think it’s a stunning effect. The first picture shows the silk colour better!
