"Having just done a day class in modern canvaswork, with it has be said hilarious results proving it's not really for me, this style is more me. Lovely effect of the wave, a very clever interpretation.  What a success."

Profile Information

What type of textile arts are you interested in?
I love texture and colour and have spent a long time exploring them through the medium of freestyle neeplepoint
What's your favorite type of needlework?
I have a BA Hons in Textile Design and Embroidery from Dundee Art College in Scotland.
Please feel free to tell us a little bit about yourself by way of introduction.
I started my professional life as an embroiderer, teacher and lecturer, but moved into a business designing and manufacturing cards and gifts with a textile base. This has taken up all of my "creating" time until now, but I seriously want to find some time to get back to working in needlepoint and related textile arts for my own satisfaction. I'm looking forward to inspiration and encouragement from this group.

Marion, Your work is just beyond words, your are so creative...I tried some canvas work at one time, but did not carry on with it however, your work makes me want to revisit it. I have so much else going on though it could be a while. In the meantime will feast on your beautiful and inspiring work.

Hi Marion, I do have a blog and I have my first three blocks of my crazy quilt and the stories behind them are under a label 'crazy quilts' (surprise surprise).
dinkydideequilts.blogspot.com. Must put the other finished ones up. I don't know about you, but I find it takes a while to put a blog post up and my time is really tight at the moment. I visited your blog this morning and will revisit again. There is so much beautiful work to look at. It is so amazing that we can share our creations across the world. Have a great day
Regards Dianne

Thanks Marion for commenting on my Rose Block. There are nine blocks in all in the crazy quilt, but the last few need tweaking. Will put some more photos up soon of the completed blocks. It's a bit like a painting, sometimes you just don't know where to stop! :-) Have enjoyed looking at your photos, simply stunning work.

Marion,
Welcome to stitchin fingers. I have been drooling over photos of your work here and on your blog. I have always looked at canvas work for ideas to design patchwork, but have never seen anything as interesting as yours. Look forward to seeing more!
