I am never happier than when I have a needle of some sort in my hand!
This pleasure has led me to dabble in some mixed media embroideries and collage projects, using all sorts of different fabrics and effects, sometime helped by my embellisher machine, which offers all sort of intriguing design possibilities. I am also very attracted to felting, both the sort you make yourself and by using pre-made felt as a base for other stitching.
A visit to Venice was the inspiration for my 3-D petalled crown shown here (this has actually been worn by some members of my family at parties!) while my collage pictures take their inspiration from our garden.
And I love decorating boxes, too, and find their basic shape offers all sorts of decorative possibilities. My journey into this sort of mixed media work has only just begun.
