Tag Tuesday

Here is my tag, the theme this week is white, which is not a colour I use a lot so it was interesting to come up with something suitable.  It's amazing what you can find in your fabric stash - silk velvet, organza and lacy fabric and add buttons and sequins.  Really enjoying being part of this.

Crazy Patchwork

Went to the first Embroiderers' Guild meeting of the new year yesterday.  Had a really great day as the session was run by one of our members, Marion and she introduced me to crazy patchwork which I loved!  Traditional patchwork is too precise for me so this technique suited me perfectly, I particularly like adding the stitches and embellishments, those of you who know me will not be surprised to know that shisha mirrors, sequins and sparkly thread appear in my work.

Here are two pictures, one is my tag for the Tag Tuesday blog and one is a piece of crazy patchwork I was inspired to start when I got home last night (luckily Saturday night television does not require much concentration!)

Just a quick post to say thank you to my lovely friend Carolyn for providing my new background as she knows I love mermaids!
