Hoping to start a sewing page too hopefully sometime soon, I don't seem to get much time for anything these days, time just slips away!

My work is mainly Free-motion embroidery; I like to work with Hand dyeing, Appliqué, Textural layering and Lace effects on soluble fabric, to create fabrics rich in texture and colour. I draw inspiration from just about everything including, nature, art, fantasy, and historic and religious influences. Fine machine embroidered detail and hand beading is incorporated into my wedding garments and special occasion wear

the detail is just sample pieces of fabric pinned into position
|Finished top - just an experiment, but am pleased with the result|
