same mood

different media.
have noticed a common theme accross the areas of my work of late. i've been mixing colours around, showing as much of the cross over detail as possible in the reversed garter stitch scarves and found myself repeating this theme in the collages. . .

the button and the bunny

here is a button that i'm happy with! i've used this one for a women's scarf – something i've decided i should make more of. i was immediately attracted to the almost fluro orange. embroidery cotton is a new discovery for me ....

i've just finished this bunny for our little one. it's amazing how kids and babies respond to toys like these! the pattern by camilla engman is from 'the happy hooker' by debbie stoller {i love her books, the instructions are so clear and her style is easy to access}. try calling bookshops to see if they stock this one, and see if they laugh and say, oh but we do have the one by xaviera hollander . . .

i thought that i too would enter the world of blogging!

this is something that i have been thinking about for ages and admittedly have mainly resisted. but i was inspired by sam at aprilmay to actually start getting with it. i hope to use it to share ideas and inspirations.

at the moment i have more work to do than time {i know i'm not alone with this} and definitely more grand ideas than ability to focus on finishing one thing entirely. and i am happy about this – it is a great feeling to be working on something and be totally carried away with it.

this pic is one of my new scarf designs which will be available at the next 'all in a months work' at aprilmay open studio april 4, 5 & 6.
