Daisy Journal
Fabric books are much on my mind as next Friday I'm off to 'Late Summer at Hawkwood' with Frances Pickering. So I thought I'd share the last sample I made for my December workshop, which is this Daisy Scrap Journal. Daisi...

Natural Dyeing again
More playing in the kitchen, mordant free! Some lovely pale indigo/grey tones with black beans - I used a lot more this time! Avocado pits next. I played about with re-wetting, drying and folding the freshly dyed fabrics,  and got some nice textural marks. ...

My 1920's Book
Well, here it is, as far as I've got.  As I said, this was a challenge. The 20's would not be my personal decade of choice for a subject, so I found it hard to get my head into  the right place. My cover was originally, going to be some sort of geometric fl...

Brown paper and Stitch
Another experiment - working with recycled material. Inspired by my workshop at the end of last summer with Frances Pickering I wanted to make a simple book using paint and stitch. This little prototype is made entirely fr...

Deer, Roe deer, Roe deer....
Deer have been much in my mind of late, and then I saw Tammie's invitation to this drawing challenge!  A while ago I was thrilled to find a Roe deer antler on the marshland behind our home, and made a journal entry about it. These deer are British natives. ...

I found a treasure! Victorian Crazy Quilt.
I found a real treasure while stewarding on Open Doors weekend at Kings Weston two weeks ago. A wonderful Victorian crazy quilt, which was languishing in a dark passageway. It had been mounted in a frame at some time. I squeaked a lot, then rushed off to ma...

I had a fab playday at the Festival of Quilts with my lovely
friend Alison. It's usually quieter on  Sunday and so we spent lots of time chatting to textile artists Frances Pickering (and husband Jim,) Hilary Beattie and Janet Clare , which was  lovely!  A...
