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 .

Just a reminder for my double give away in yesterdays post, it's just a little scroll down.....I have disabled comments on this post. I love your comments I really do but my inbox is so full and I haven't replied yet or said thankyou or anything remotely polite that I expect a few of you will stop speaking to me soon!! I will visit honest but my other half is taking me out today. I can't complain can I ?
