crystal blue sky and sweet scent of roses...

that climb around my house waft perfume through windows whilst I am sewing. Actually grouting ! not sewing has been the order of the day so far. Some of my new singing birds have been taking shape and part of this is a small piece of ceramic mosaic, hence the grouting.  Once dry birds have stitched tail feathers rather like fluffy bussels and little cloth arms attached by linen buttons. I thought I have been rather neglectful of my blog so today I have a few photographs to share with you. Not long until the big exhibition in Shire Hall so lots of things need to be sewn , painted, stitched, sanded and generally buffed up before the big day ! so her for your delight are some swatches and samples of rare fabrics included in my work.....




linen and fine cotton muslin

ticking stripes and tapestry

kid leather and small ditsy print
keep watching more images to come of singing birds and cloth eared rabbits
