A blog that follows my explorations in cloth from surface design and art cloth to stitch, embellish and quilting. I use all forms of textile and threads starting with a white or natural colour base and adding life to the fabric with colour,texture and stitch.

A little bit of hand stitching
Took some time out to finish a little piece I started a while back - the design emerged from some old sketches of burst seed pods. Using painted felt for some dimensional texture on a dyed background I then drew the design together with hand stitching.
