- Tilly Tea Dance
- 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.

WOYWW - dumfling relaxation!
I am joining in WOYWW for the first time.
(Well I have been following a few of you for ages! My Mum is Twiglet and my aunt is Wipso - I am one of the two 'M's that they regularly refer to......the one that hasn't had those lovely cheeky twins!)
I don't have a desk to reveal - I craft on my kitchen table so it has to be cleared away when I am dumfed out.
Over the last few weeks, I had a bit of relaxation time and borrowed Mum's dumfing machine (needle felting embellisher to most of you).

Update - I have popped these in my Etsy shop.
The seascapes are now beaded up and mounted on toning card. One is missing, as it was spotted on my earlier post and snapped up by an eagle eyed WOYWWer! Thanks lots.
They are just tiny puffs of wool curls and silk, dumfed together and embellished with beads and little mother of pearl stars.
Maybe I will even snap my table when I next get a bit of crafty time so that you can snoop - tho I guess you will have seen it all on Twiglet's table as that's where I "borrowed" it all from!!
OK now I think I have to find out how to add my name to Mr Linky on Julia's blog.
Thanks for calling.
