A blog about making art and other things using cloth, paper, paint, colour, stitch, and all sorts of exciting techniques, some of which I'm sure I still have to discover! I hope that the joy all this gives me is visible in what you can see here.

Black thread drawing!

Bluebells and a butterfly.

Two more brooches. This time I decided to use my favourite technique of free machine stitching, or as I like to call it 'drawing' with my machine needle! Both stitched/drawn in black thread on scraps of cotton fabric that I had previously painted with acrylic paint. I think I prefer these simpler styles to the hand stitched brooches in my previous post.
