Some published artwork and journals!

Although my artwork these days has a focus of mixed media, vintage textiles papers, lace and fibres, I am still always drawn to the love of crazy quilting where I can incorporate the use of these.

This piece has been published in the 2019 Crazy Quilt Calendar available 1st October! It depicts the month of February with a romantic Valentine's Theme!

 This image depicts some antique lace with cherubs on it!
Rather special I feel!
Herringbone pearl beaded stitching!


Vintage ginger colored lace fabric over 
embroidered netting!


The old gold satin embroidered piece was from
a very old cushion! 
the romantic French card image I printed
onto fabric for an off centre piece
the beautiful laces
along with appliques of wedding pearls
and black printed flowers over white organza!


 Some beautiful two toned silk ribbon
which I beaded with vintage black beads!

(Apologies for this deletion I was unable to correct it!!!!!!)


 There really is something special and unique in stitching
with these old laces and work so
easily into these crazy quilted pieces!

If you would like to see some lovely lace quilts then visit Joelle at matinlumineux.blogspot.com
She is sharing some of my lace quilts also which was
such a co-incidence! Thank you dear friend very much!


These are a few mini journals which I have recently created!




These little journals which measure approx. 6" x 8" contain 
12 stamped pages which have been left blank
for your own journalling!

All have gone to new homes but this last one is still
available in my Etsy shop
Just click on the link to view! 

As these images are predominantly in neutral shades
Go over there to view many other lovely
neutral images!

Thank you to my new followers for joining me
and wishing you all a great creative week!
