I’ve been a little quiet on here as I’ve been getting all my admin up to date. It’s now all done which is such a relief, it’s something I must keep on top of this year. So I now feel I can get back to being creative.
I’ve been collecting vintage fabric for a while so I think it’s time I really did something with it.
I’m thinking pretty zip pouches as they’re always useful, any other suggestions gratefully received.
Enjoy your day. x
Claude the albino alligator is finished. I learnt a lot from this embroidery, and definitely made a few mistakes I'll improve on going forward, primarily with prepping the fabric before hand and finishing touches, but I'm happy with the overall image and colours. Already planning the next one!
I'm so lucky to live in a seaside town.We even have a pier.
This is my version of it in progress made from fabrics including old jeans.
I explain the process in this month's @becreativewithworkbox magazine.
Hope you like the feature.

Did I ever post this Well, this was my first ever big piece and it's a design collab with my then 10-year-old boy. He came up with the design and this is my interpretation of it. This was a practice piece and I learned a lot from the process right now I am preparing a little beginners workshop in Copenhagen, Denmark @palermohollywood2.0
What would you like to learn more about if you were totally new to hand tufting and punch needle
So yesterday's session for #level2creativetextilescourse was mark making not something that came naturally, however once the lightbulb went on I was quite pleased with what I produced and am looking forward to see in it progress over the next couple of weeks into print making, these are some of the tools I used to begin with xx #textileartist #textileart #lovetolearn #lottieshq

Day 16 of my journey on the #365daysofart and #365daysofstitches challenges 🙂🙂🙂 I've already been sick a couple of times this year (ridiculous, I know) so I'm kinda proud that I'm keeping up so far, even though it's only been a bit over two weeks😊
This is a frame-in for a cute, new little project I started. Not entirely sure what I'll put in the middle yet, I have several ideas that i want to try. Any ideas out there Maybe I just need a fresh one to help me settle on something lol
