Here are a few of the things I've been up to recently on the creative front. I have tried to just enjoy experimenting with different techniques. I usually have to have some starting inspiration, so as I said in my last post I looked at the work of Janet Bolton and Ann Rothenstein. I love their simplicity - which as I know is really difficult to achieve!
I'm not too sure about my choice of fabrics, but I enjoyed the simplicity of handstitching and will try and finish them soon. The applique at the top was inspired by a painting (below) I started a while ago and didn't finish!- typical
I also experimented with some machine embroidery which was quite difficult to control!
I was quite happy with my garden fairy though!
My next bit of creativity is to make some more shaped dolls with felt, I'll keep you posted!
Hello, thanks for visiting my blog. I am a forty-something mum living in Cornwall with a husband, two children and 6 rabbits.I have a background in textiles, and have always made things.I am inspired by bold shapes,colours, folk art, and the human figure including dolls.I also love collecting fabrics, ceramics and unusual things!
I also love baking and have an (unfulfilled) desire to live a simpler more self sufficient life.
