designer fabrics

i’ve been experimenting with designing fabrics based on my drawings

here’s a sample based on a page from one of my artist books

a range of fabrics (including cotton, wool, silk, canvas and upholstery weight) are available

3 rivers

this quilt may end up being a scroll

a quilt – or scroll – that is about genocide, oppression, death … oh, and being sorry, and forgiveness, and hope

it is also about 3 rivers (more about that later)

the back is pieced from 2 ‘found’ fabrics – one commercial, one hand printed

all the fabrics on the front have been designed, printed, dyed and/or painted by me (except for the little brown rectangles)

i’m now thinking about how i will quilt the layers

100 + 500

This week, I found out I have achieved 2 milestones:  100 follows and 500 likes!

I started this blog in March this year, and the support and interest has been very encouraging.

Thank you so much everyone!

journal covers

i briefly showed these when we were preparing for the deloraine market

i’ve only made 2 so far, but i think i’ll be making more soon

stitchedupmama on display

even though my gallery and its blog are named (and themed) as gone rustic, i also sell my stitchedupmama creations there

it hasn’t been easy to find ways to display them

i shared a post recently about the stands i made to showcase my neckpieces

here they are ‘in situ’ at gone rustic

it took me a while to work out how to display my crochet (and other) jewellery to its best advantage, but i think i’ve finally done it (not all of these have been photographed individually yet)

i had the same problem with my mEsH infinity scarves and triangle scarf, but eventually i put them on wooden coat hangers and hung them on an old clothes airer

more scarves, the spinning flower beanie, the firebird beanie, and the equinnox and panorama sets are piled in an old suitcase in front
