Apparently I was trying to stitch as soon as I could hold a needle. I did O level Needlework at 16, a Btec Diploma in Fashion and Manufacture at 20 and then City and Guilds Certificate and Diploma just recently.
Is there anything else you'd like other members of Stitchin' Fingers to know about you? Please feel free to tell us a little bit about yourself by way of introduction.
where did you get your cyanotype fabric? am assuming this is the same as sun printing?
I have been wanting to experiment with this technique for a while now....and with the sun finally returning!
am going to US soon, so am sure I can find it there, but was wondering if there was somewhere over here? (in UK)
Well Adele, I have just confessed my addiction to Stitchin fingers to a friend and I was not going to look at any more pictures tonight, and came back to the main page and found your work. Seeing I can't help myself, I now have to say how beautiful your work is and what a joy to find it. I love the way you have used color in your items.
