Tag Swap

This is a tag made for Chris as part of a forum swap. Chris chose Children as her theme and i do love this image of the little girl. Some distress inks and stitch with an image transfer.

Contemporary Embroidery Samples

These are some of the samples I prepared for my embroidery course which i am doing at NCAD in Dublin every week. I am loving it :0)) The images were transferred to the linen with Jet FX transfer paper - this is a very easy option for transferring images, I think I prefer the gel medium transfer method but these give a perfect finish, with a slightly waxy feel to them.

Happy New Year

Happy New Year everyone - I had hoped to show you some of my current work but couldn't resist a winter walk today and it didn't disappoint, this little fellow was happy to pose for lots of photos while having his dinner.

Here are some more piccies of the frost around the garden.

I hope to be back on track showing my textile work very soon.
