Abstract Stitching & Sketching





Here are a few more brooches to share with you, these are stitched again as I would paint, lots of small stitches dancing,flowing and creating rhythms of colour.

As we have had a few sunny days, I managed to do some drawing in our local park, with dog, son, husband and rugby ball!
I found a shelterd spot to sit in the sunshine and sketched very quickly,these drawings may develope into paintings.

Tomorrow I am off to London to stay with my sister,I'm so excited!
We are planning a visit to Spitterfields Market on Thursday as it has lots of antique stalls on that day and I think it has vintage clothing too.
Also to visit, if we can get in, the http://www.royalacademy.org.uk/exhibitions/vangogh/ to see the Van Gogh exhibition.


Oh and if you would like to enter my draw,do leave a comment in the post below, it finishes on Saturday.

I hope you have a lovely week.

Just love your sketching... Your line just dances, and its amzing how you can recreate that in your little brooches.
Enjoy your trip.

I think you are in for a treat, the exhibition is amazing and I think you will be inspired. Actually I think your work has a lot in common with Van Gogh, it has the same energy and vibrant colour.

what fun finding vintage fabrics, Is the best place to go for them London? I am supposed to go to the Chelsea flower show, maybe I will fit in some fabric hunting too. Have you any advice?
