Birthday surprises ...

It's my mum's birthday later this week - this is a sneaky peek at the cushion I am making for her. It's vintage lace with appliqué and lots of French knots. She doesn't normally look at the blog so this shouldn't give the secret away, but I bet she'll have a look now I've said that!!

Ongoing work ...

More pieces of work for my new series on houses and memories. These are small vintage paper pieces with added watercolour and embroidered panels. All ready for framing.

Scarecrow Festival


Three Little Kittens have lost their Mittens. Stitched wallpaper "scarecrows" for the Fairytale and Nursery Rhyme themed Scarecrow Festival which is being held here in Cononley this weekend. They are in the window of The Secret Drawer - who make bespoke kitchens, bathrooms and furniture and offer an interior design service - which is why we decided to use wallpaper as the base for our entry this year.
