The Last Post

After much deliberation I have decided to temporarily suspend my blog and focus  more on my Facebook pages.

I think Facebook offers an opportunity for more interactive posts and real time information.

I hope you will follow me at Frayed Round the Edges and 02 Textiles, the links are below


Frayed Round The Edges

See you there!

Cigar boxes

I was given some cigar boxes to work a little collage magic onto. Although they were fiddly I really enjoyed covering and lining them.

Stitching on a stone!

 
Who would have thought you could stitch on a stone!
Here is one of my felted stones with detailed hand stitching, a work in progress.

Felted Stones

Who would have thought you could felt fibres onto a stone?
 
These are going to be embellished with stitch at a later date....

Watercolour Landscapes

 
These two cards are the result of a watercolour play day with some crafting friend. I was experimenting with my Inktense Pencils and art bars.

Blue Bird

For Christmas I has a 3d pen as a present. It works in a similar way to a glue gun but easier to control. It uses the same filament as a 3d printer.
 
Here is my first 3d model 
 
I am hoping I will be able to use the filament in conjunction with my textile work at a later date.
