For centuries women have used cloth as a tool of comfort and as an expression of beauty within their homes. Creating cloth for warmth, cloth for shelter, our female predecessors embellished these linens with hand stitch using laborious and time consuming techniques thereby enhancing the functional beauty of objects which enveloped and protected their families. Inspired by these women I hope my creations pay tribute to and recognise the devotion expressed in cloth by our female ancestors .

back and forth and back and forth













I'm back....again. I did post this to Typepad but it's gone AWOL again. I won't be beaten. This is a quick look for you at my week so far through images taken with my phone, spontaneous, of the moment. I got new threads, I ate an Easter egg and yes I know that one of my walls is in need of attention....sorry.
