Stitching mends the soul

This little doll is housed in an old drawer covered with pages from a vintage embroidery stitch instruction booklet. Her skirt is made from a piece of vintage patchwork but I've added my own tiny patches and buttons. Hope you like her.

Sing your song

This lovely old box was given to me by a dear friend and it's so satisfying to make new use of it. I love stitching birds and I think this may be my favourite. I especially liked stitching the speckles on his tummy.

She believed she could so she did

This is similar to this piece I made, but much smaller. The box is covered in pages from 'Women Poets'.

Such a simple phrase but so hard to put into practice sometimes -  it's good to be reminded that things can sometimes be that simple...
