Sometimes i climb tall trees…

‘Sometimes i climb tall trees and wear fancy hats with wellington boots’ is now in its frame!

sorry about the reflections!

70 x 100 cm     £300

working on another stitch picture…and the bug catcher still

Whilst waiting for the frame for ‘sometimes’ and to appease the sewing urges whilst i am working away on the bug catcher sculpture…i have begun another stitch picture…lots to do still, but here’s a quick preview of both…

i amworking on  his head at the moment – but i don’t want to ruin the surprise by showing it yet! Lots and lots to do !!!!!!!!!!! But he’s getting there and is complaining that i should hurry up and start painting him because he has a mission to complete! So i better carry on….

‘Sometimes’ – finished

i have finished the ‘sometimes’ picture -needs an iron and just waiting for the frame.

The bug catcher and another stitch picture – both in progress!

Just so you don’t worry that my fingers have been idle recently …a few pictures of what I am working on at the moment…
a new sculpture … the bug catcher, from one of my pen and ink illustrations … His leather funnels!
He’s lots of fun to do – but still disturbingly headless – lots to do!

And the new large stitch picture i am working on simultaneously…. the girls’s outfit, hat and long feather will be the only colour / fabric – the trees i have machine embroidered and am busy working into it by hand to give the effect almost of biro scribbling / sketching…once i have finished the trees i will add beadwork to the hat and long feather…

Two New Stitch Pictures

I have taken a time out from making tiny weapons for the latest art doll and thrown myself back into the stitches…these two new pieces appeared…

There is no such thing as ‘too many shoes ‘!    SOLD
Textiles, free hand machine stitching, hand sewing, bead work …in a white frame … 21 x 17 inches.

You drive me cuckoo!
Textiles, free hand machine sewing, hand sewing, bead work…in a white frame… 17 x 21 inches.
This is probably due to far too many hours sat making tiny arrows and going slowly mad with their fiddlieness! It is a textiles version of my pen and ink drawing – You make me cuckoo!
