2017: Stitching Projects

This page shows some of my recent stitching work: mainly works-in-progress and the rare appearance of something I've finished.

January 2017

Finished at last - the New York Quilt - nothing more to say really.

Slowly mastering the art of spaghetti quilting 

So lucky to have wonderful walls for a bit of a showing off!!! 

The Swindon Postbox and one other piece completed months ago are now with the Framer in Fleaurance. Wonderful to find this workshop in one of the town's backstreets and to have the wisdom of the framer to help with decisions about the finishing touches to small textile pieces. I'l post pics once they are done but meanwhile here's one of the slow seed stitching work I'm doing.

December 2016

The layering, courting and stitching are now completed on the piece I worked on during Wendy Dolan's Architecture in Stitch course in November. Its not really finished but I'm still thinking about how to frame it ... the first step will be stretching it over acid free card, but for now here it is with the   photo that inspired the piece.
