blue and white



Indigo dyed cotton from last summer, finally rinsed and airing on the line.


Ready to be used at a printing workshop taught by Dionne Swift this Sunday.


We're having a proper cold snap here, but I've had a letter this week that has had me planning for Spring. After being on a waiting list for years, I've finally been offered my own allotment. More space to grow, including indigo plants. I'm very lucky.

  8. Found your blog recently - and LOVE your stitching. Looks wonderful!

    I stitch too (on and of). So, please, allow me one question: How do YOU start? Simply UP and DOWN - and then sees what happens/ where you end up? Or do you have a over all composition in mind before starting?

    1. Hello Hanne, thank you! For me it depends on the cloth I'm stitching. It's a pretty free process but I always begin in the middle of the cloth. It's less free when I work on a pieced background as I tend to follow the patches. I've visited your blog before, it's great.
