Now 8 Days To Go in the Countdown

So I managed to miss a couple of days of he countdown here - I managed to update my FB page and Instagram though at least. I need some kind of app that will post everywhere at once and then I'm done lol. Anyway, I love these samples, showing my current obsession with stitching everything, paper, card , fabric, it doesn't matter !! I believe the theme of the show is more than obvious by now too :)

11 Days To Go ! Bird Cushion

I cannot resist making small scatter cushions wherever I can, so it is virtually guaranteed that they will make an appearance on my Hochanda shows. I love the variegated marbled effect of the painted background and stencilled bird and berries. The effect is embellished with stamps, sequins and free motion stitching. I hope you like it xxxx

12 Days To Go !

This is one of my absolute favourite pieces for the show. A mixed media tag with plenty of drama and freedom of movement. I hope I can demo this one .....

Brand New Tv Show On Hochanda 4th April

Phew! It will have been about 8 months since I was last on Hochanda. I had a few major life altering things going on behind the scenes including moving house and 18 years of accumulated junk into the new place. It has also been an intense time of reflection and seeing the need to get rid of toxic factors that were holding me back. Without getting too maudlin, I found myself in a sad place and found amazing relief and inspiration from trusted loved ones, and nature. This collection was so therapeutic to create and brought me so much joy, I cannot wait to share that and see how the collection is received

Now I am only 2 weeks away from my re launch and have been working hard making inspirational samples for the show in a sort of celebratory countdown to the date lol. There is also going to be a surprise that we're arranging with Hochanda which I am excited about too... anyway, here is the first offering, a mixed media, stitched tag inspired by art and junk journaling. Hope you lie it,see you tomorrow with another offering!!
