stains (embroidered)

It's been great to be back. Thank you so much anyone who's been in touch to welcome me back or stopped by to read my blog.

Currently I'm utterly immersed in stains. The beauty, the detail and the possibilities of them... and it seems from the positive reaction I've had that I'm not the only person finding them interesting. So I'm working on more and on the direction that I think they could move in and will post more when I get a chance as they have leapt forward somewhat since these shots.

Thank you again for the welcome. I will start blogging about other makers as soon as I am at a sensible point with my own work.

I have a new website, please feel free to visit and tell me what you think.

I'm also tweeting as lovelymisselvis but not sure how to put it on here.

I'm happy that my latest cutwork is on the website, along with some lesser known embroidery and will have more new embroidery to show soon. I'm not a giant publicist but I think the website is worth a mention.

Now I'll shut up about me. I've a few new blog entries lined up again which will start once my wonderful 4 yr old daughter returns to school and I have some time to think.

For some reason I seem to have lost the capacity to rearrange the order of images on here. If anyone happens to know if there have been any changes whilst I've been away, please let me know.

work in progress

floor installation - richard woods
window installations throughout - elvis robertson

my apologies to anyone who has left me a message or email on this blog. In addition to being preoccupied with a large project, I was taken very ill during Christmas and New Year and have made a slow but wonderful recovery.

This particular project works with light and extremely intricately hand cut suede which is attached to a sheer organza.

It will work as one piece across a wing of a house. The pieces flow into each other to form one large image. I also have other work in development which means I am continuously distracted.

There are so many exciting artists and incredible work around that I would like to show and share opinions on, so I hope to resume the blog as soon as I get some time. However I will be engrossed until about June and hope to share a special summer with my daughter and partner - the best kind of work in progress. At some point I will publish all the comments and reply to anyone that has been kind enough to get in touch with me.

Thank you to anyone who has continued to drop by or make contact with me. It is amazing to think that people are interested in my anorak ramblings. I am touched and thankful.

I will add more images to my website
