new designs

 Some collaged birds with free machining. I've made them so that they will fit into an Ikea frame.
 They are great fun to make

 These pieces are mounted onto artists canvases and are quite small.

I enjoyed working the hand stitching on these ones but it's amazing how long it takes to stitch by hand. Most of my work these days is worked by machine so I've enjoyed getting back to basics, simple running stitch is one of my favourites.
Roll on the Festival!


  1. Hi, just found your blog and I am loving it! I especially love your collaged birds. I am just experimenting with hand embroidery at the moment myself and I'm looking forward to experimenting with machine sewing too! Your brooches are very nice too. Keep up the good work!
