Just a couple of pictures I meant to put up ages ago from the Mending at the Museum exhibition at the Bristol Museum & Art Gallery.
"Stitching and Thinking is a research project born out of a love of stitched textiles and a conviction of the importance of retaining hand skills within creative practice. The project identifies and explores the values and current comtemporary thinking about hand-making skills reflected through the discipline of stitch."
I have always loved embroidery and think that, especially with written text, the form of embroidery offers something really firm and comforting. I love the red and white colours and the simplistic modern style used in these pieces. I can't wait to get a new sewing machine and get back into some embroidery!

p.s I would love to know what you all think of my new layout! I've finally had enough of pink.... for the mean time anyway.

feathered fancies for festival freaks!

Hello everybody! Sorry I've been a little bit quiet lately... I've suddenly gone from being jobless and lazy.... to having two jobs and uni work piling up and I've finally started my feather headdress project that I've been talking about for ages....
Please come on over and like the facebook page, I'd love to know what you think of them. I'm thinking about holding a little giveaway of one soon!
