I’ve finally summoned up the courage to start exhibiting my
work. The first piece to look out for this year is ‘Take Time to Smell the Roses’ that will be exhibiting at the Embroiderers’ Guild UK 2019 AGM in April – the theme is ‘Life’s Rich Pattern’.

The Cotton Mills of Lancashire have inspired a great deal of my work, especially my latest stitchery project.
I’ve combined my love of red thread with a vintage garment and the job titles of those working in the cotton industry to make a piece of wearable art.
I love red. This wonderful pincushion from
is made using cloth woven in Lancashire.
It’s a work in progress – my mind is already busy thinking about the next two pieces of embroidery I want to create! Does is happen to you too?
After a few extra days of stitchery, I’ve completed the piece I started at a recent
Jessie Chorley workshop.
I couldn’t resist using this vintage handkerchief.
A bit of stitchery later.
It’s ready to pin onto my apron pocket.
