For centuries women have used cloth as a tool of comfort and as an expression of beauty within their homes. Creating cloth for warmth, cloth for shelter, our female predecessors embellished these linens with hand stitch using laborious and time consuming techniques thereby enhancing the functional beauty of objects which enveloped and protected their families. Inspired by these women I hope my creations pay tribute to and recognise the devotion expressed in cloth by our female ancestors .

christmas gift just for you

remember my give aways? when I say I wish I could give you all something? maybe this is that, if you know what I mean?? As it's christmas I am taking 20% off everything in the shop until December 10th. Use the code advent2010 when you checkout, easy as that. ( the discount doesn't apply to postage and packing)
Back tomorrow with embroidery......and a little peep at my christmas shopping...
