Crazy Quilting

This is a little friendship pillow/sachet that I made for my very dear friend Pierrette, if you look closely you will find a little 'Bee' as I always try to add one to everything I make for her (this is a little joke between us)

Crazy Quilting

This is a little Pansy block that I made that I was going to make into a little pouch however I decided that it would make a far nicer needlecase

Mr Blobby

This is my Mr Blobby in his favourite sleeping position, It seems to be quite a common pose for cats who are rather rotund (better be polite in case they can read this as you never know)

Freestyle Embroidery/Needlepainting

This is a peacock that I designed and stitched for my City & Guilds Embroidery and Design course it is worked on Ivory silk fabric and the threads used are all silk with the odd scattering of a gold metallic thread

This was one of my first attempts at creating a picture with threads, it is worked in a single strand of either DMC or Anchor. The design is one of the Di Van Niekerke miniature cottages this is her old website but you can find her new designs here

This is another of Di Van Niekerk miniature cottages that I worked with single stands of either DMC or Anchor threads

The Needlecase, Pincushion and
Scissor Fob are all made with Dupion Silk and the embroidery is all done with Edmar's finest rayon thread called Glory
