Welcome to my stitchery blog.
I would like to think that whilst you are here with me you enjoy my whimsical world of sewing and all things vintage.
I adore treasure hunting for old fabrics, buttons, threads and stitchery goods ... One mans rubbish is another's treasure. Creating is in my soul and I hope that comes across within these pages.
I love creating, nature and herbal teas ... Cinnamon being my new favourite!
So why not stay a while and join me on this journey of creativity.

Experimenting with fabrics and threads!....
Art is not what you see but what you make others see. Edgar Degas
I have been experimenting with some fabric and thread.... I cut out a basic shell shape and the did some embroidery over it for the detail and I have to say it is very very pleasing indeed!
I enjoy playing about with ideas, some do not work well and others do.
So if you cut out your shape from fabric from something like a sea shell there really is no detail, but if you use a simple stitch to enhance the shape with a variegated thread the results are astonishing!
Also something like a flower where it has a small pattern on the fabric and then put on embroidery petals it is different and so pretty.......
