I have finally caught up!

Pages 3 and 4 finished. Digital printing, transfer printing, eco dyeing, stencilling, upcycled scarf, tulle, vintage ribbon, buttons, 3D appliqué, free motion quilting, hand embroidery, machine stitched cords.

I am actually a page behind nearly everyone else …

Page 2 of my entry in our local fibre and textile book challenge. Digitally printed silk, pastel rubbings on transfer artist paper (ironed onto cotton), twisted and stitched cords, machine quilted, found buttons.

New project on the go

Eco dyed vintage Japanese kimono silk, plus pieces of cotton interlock I used as ‘iron blankets’ when eco dyeing a top (love how they turned out).

Slow-stitching the vintage silk onto a piece of handwoven Donegal tweed given to me by my daughter.

A hidden story
