I was mentally searching for the right word to put on here. I found ‘grow’ among my box of tricks. I had a choice of pink or green/white. ‘The right words at the right time’ you’d be mine’ Lyrics from Tracy Chapman float into my head. I like how the densely stitched shapes create anContinue reading “Grow”

Textile art has two sides. The reverse side is always a surprise.

Not too happy with the overall effect of the blue and the green thread, I prefer yesterday’s brighter colours and contrast. Here comeContinue reading “Letter ‘f’”
I have one hundred 3″ cloth squares in various colours and a number of random letters left over from another project. Each day I will stitch one letter to one square and post it on Instagram and blog about the process here. This is to get into a habit of making and to make aContinue reading “Trying again”
