Are We Nearly There Yet?

I can almost see the light at the end of the sewing-tunnel.  I have been so busy I have been slack with the posts; must try harder!  Here are some images of Autumnal Collars and Whimsical Folk canvas collages.  I really like to imagine what some of the characters are thinking... 
Also, I have had a brilliant response from the Deer Collar feature in Mollie Makes, thanks to everyone that contacted me and who made their own collars.

Deer Collar

I was very excited when my subscription to 'Mollie Makes' magazine squashed through the rather too small letter-box.  I had a 'making' feature' inside of a Deer Collar, and I was thrilled with the results!  Lots of other lovely ideas and features too, and a BIG thanks to the sweet Jane Foster for mentioning me in her blog, (her screen printed Santas are on the page before me!).

They speak for themselves...

Happy Holidays...

These are my new 'winter hanging folk', they remind me of characters from an old 1950s American movie involving a huge twinkly department store with a moving Santa in the window, ice skaters, and maybe a bumbling but hansome Cary Grant!  Vivid imagination I know; they are felt people... get a grip!

Still Here!

I have not dropped off the face of the earth, and am indeed still here.  I have been really busy with pre-Christmas making/designing/general stressing 'stuff'.  Any how, here are some pictures from 'The Stitch and Knit Show' at Alexandra Palace.  Myself and the lovely Gerry visited last week and had a nice if not rushed time of it!  Here are some images of work from the Gallery section...

The embroidered truck door and hand-embroidered ribbon were quite amazing.

Terrible Twins!

Found some images of  mittens I made last year from recycled jumpers; thought they were apt with the weather getting chillier.  I always  get amusing comments when I wear my pair of twins!

Mollie Makes Magazine...

I am delighted to of been asked to produce a project and feature for this brilliant magazine,  for the Christmas edition.  I am such a fan, and it is definitely one of my monthly high-lights when I hear the postman attempting to squeeze my subscription through the letterbox!  Will keep you posted...

Outdoorsy Guy

I have had a lot of fun hand printing 'Outdoorsy Guy' and his friends for a shop in Rye.  I must be one of the only people I know who likes the nights drawing in and the cosiness of being inside on a wet and blustery day.  It's a great excuse to create and experiment with ideas that have been on paper for too long!  I am feeling quite smug as I have started on some Christmas ideas!
