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 .

Pieces of a pocket

 These are the lower edges of what will eventually be a pocket. You saw this It's not finished yet, the lining has to be created and then it all needs to be put together. I will be doing all that with class later this week hopefully. 
I have 18 pieces of lace cloth to create for my workshop in France and I hope to make progress with that later pressure then. Meantime I have finished the cloth from yesterday and will share that with you tomorrow.
and a reminder....a new all about it here.....
