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 .

sorry you didn't find the skirt-it's a beauty. i use the Yves Rocher night cream to prevent wrinkles. moisturizing is a good thing no matter what you use.

I like the skirt, but I'm sure you could make a prettier one. Do you wear any of your creations??
I'm finishing another teddy and making a white bunny for Easter. Love,
