This is a close-up, 'detail' picture of the inside of the hand bag i'm currently working on. There must be a zillion stitches inside and out and i think it's almost finished now....
... it's very hard to stop, almost the mixed media of stitching, it's hard to know when it's finished and very easy to keep adding to it.
New 'Studio' photo
My ever-changing studio. We keep finding these beautiful cupboards at the antique/salvage shows we attend, they're very beautiful and tell such a story. This one is a gorgeousl green colour and rescued from someone's garage, hence the bursts of red spray paint.
This one is old, about 200 years old, i'm just going to wax it to brighten up the paint...
...perfect for storing snippets of fabric
Huge Kokeshi dolls seen at Peterborough Antiques Fair earlier this year...so beautiful
