Old and green

Pretty collage , all greens  and using some really fragile silk embroidered fragments, a little bit of tapestry, old quilt. I have echoed the fragile flowers by embroidering some of my own. All the usual favourite ingredients and in my 2018 resolution to let more go now available in my Etsy shop!

These are so much nicer for being old and worn.

On 15 December I posted some pictures of piles of fabric on my desk. I have sore fingers from stitching, stitching through January but have at last finished 18 square collages using all those bits. I am going to place a pano photo in this post so you might have to move it along to see all the pieces.

New/Old work

These collages have hung over my bed for the last ten years and I am finally letting them go as the room colour and styling is going to change.  I am selling these individually or as a pair through Etsy HERE.  I am afraid I can't post them abroad because of the jewellery elements.
I haven't worked in these nostalgic colours for many years but taking them out of the frames and remounting them has made me think I might return to this style for a bit, particularly in including found elements.

More cross stitch

Am I crazy?

I am about to cut up this Victorian crazy quilt piece. I have kept it for a long time but have decided it is just too ugly in its'present state. Look at the back though , this is what inspires me and will set me off on a new piece to hang in my studio.
