About Me

My photo
I am a lifelong fabric artist who loves bringing a home to life with quirky, unique and sumptuous pieces of textile art. I learnt my craft from sharing many a happy hour sewing with my talented mother. I particularly like collage, free-machining, needle-felting and creating home furnishings using a combination of machine and hand sewing. I love incorporating vintage and reclaimed fabrics, buttons, beads, jewellery and other items in my work to give them a second chance at being beautiful.

Having a quickie before tea!

Just grabbing five minutes to blog while I have a 'quickie' sewing session before I head round to my friend's place for curry night with the girls.

Working on a new idea for wedding hearts, which is great because it means I get to rifle through my box of buttons - full of one off vintage finds - mother of pearl, glass and bakalite.

Right, must dash... determined to get some buttons selected and stitched before I head out for the evening!


  1. Oh those were the days!!! Er um oh sorry wedding hearts yes - good idea. I love all those gorgeous buttons.
