I must be slightly mad, I spend entire days just threading up sewing machines and then I come home and do the same!
As the art & design technician I spend a lot of time helping students, by showing them how to set up the machines and how best they can use them.
So I'm surrounded by threads at work and at home, obsessed I am!
These are a few of the smaller stitched pieces I have been working on, including a commission of a silver tree for Carolyn over at http://love-stitching-red.blogspot.com/.
Luckily she likes it!
I must say thank you to Linda who cheered me up, she sent me some fun handmade book marks from her give away.She makes very pretty jewellery too, you can find out more from her blog
Recently I found out that a friend of mine has a relative who stitches and she has a blog too, a small world!
You can see Ruth's embroidery work on her blog here http://rutholearytextileart.blogspot.com/
Ruth uses some very beautiful traditional embroidery techniques including goldwork and applique.
Thanks again for your lovely comments and now it's time for me to sort out school lunch boxes!
