Fragmented Stories.....................

My Stories... Embroidery's onto linens.....







Today a blanket of dense cold cloud rests heavy over the fields. All the landscape looks fragmented, bleak, flattened by Winters cleansing.

  Winters season has reflected itself into my life over various years, cleansing and shredding away, offering harsh insights, its cold honest light in its frightening simplicity can offer many new paths to walk.

Bride the Goddess at Imbolc  (February 2nd) offers us new beginnings, a new insight, Spring Growth and a new light, but it is only now weeks later that I begin to see her growing light and feel her energy whispering fine threads of promise, to feel her insights  edging, pushing through the fragments of Winter.

With love

Valentines Heart.....Cabbages & Roses Give Away...........................

















Cabbages and Roses Podge Cerise








Cabbages and  Roses' Hatley Pink'


It is always very exciting and rewarding to get together and collaborate with other artists and makers, and I have been invited to do just that......

Together with Cabbages and Roses I have designed and lovingly made these two Romantic Heart cushions, one of which will be a Valentines GIVE AWAY on the 14th of February Valentines Day of course xx............. 
Cabbages and Roses have chosen and provided me with two co-ordinating pieces
 of their beautiful fabric, Hatley Pink and Podge Cerise. and have given me inspiration from their wonderful book 'Vintage Crafts'.

I have also used from my personal stash some vintage fabrics and some French silks, which I think just lend themselves perfectly to that contemporary yet traditional look at Cabbages and Roses.
To enter the draw for the Pink Hatley Heart Cushion please leave a comment on my blog and tell me which is your favourite Cabbages and Roses fabric.
To receive extra entries and a further chance of winning you can post this 'give away' onto your blog or any of your social networking sites such as Twitter and Facebook, then let me know you have done that in an extra comment so you don't miss out in the draw.
 Don't Forget to also visit Cabbages and Roses blog for all of their latest and exciting news.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and a fabulous Valentines day...Good Luck..
