Calpol and cuddles interrupt work!

Oh Blue Monday, a bug is rampaging round here. Both kids poorly with high temps so I’ve been dispensing medicine and working around them today.
Which means nothing much has happened…but as the weather here is awful – please let’s have some PROPER snow!- it was nice to stay in and snuggle up.

I did manage to convert some sketches for CAD embroidery

This one’s going on a new set of badges

These guys are going into a commission I’m working on at the moment but they need to be resized, and I think the little toucan could do with a few more colours on his beak. However it’s going to have to wait because now the big CAD machine has decided it needs a service – probably just attention seeking because my head has been turned by

I think I’ll be playing nurse again tomorrow so hand stitching and sketching will be on the agenda tomorrow…

I am a professional textile artist specializing in Appliqué and Free Motion machine stitching. In order to create a unique colour palette, I hand dye my own fabrics and then use these to create the landscapes and coastal scenes recorded in my sketchbook. I often incorporate recycled or vintage fabrics in my work - they add meaning to the story the work is telling. I love being so close to the Northumbrian coast and countryside and I especially like taking time walk and draw these stunning landscapes
