Before you ask – I’m not about to move into another shop or artist’s studio that I can’t afford. Nope. With lots of help and encouragement from my lovely other half, I have been developing some new wall hangings.
Those of you who know me know of my passions for free embroidery and hand-dyed fabrics and, up to now I have been incorporating these into cushions.

This is intended for our local Bursledon Brickworks Museum shop where I am a volunteer. Note the fossilized fish on the bottom left!
This is part of a larger work which is as yet unfinished and will have a few more deep sea surprises!
These wall hangings appeal to me because of the movement I can invoke with quite simple stitching techniques and the surprises I can add in the form of quirky applique!
