Cyanotype doodles – musings in blue

Posted by Elaine B on Wednesday Oct 15, 2014 Under Cyanotype, Flower, Pampootie, Workshop

I recently went to a workshop by Hannah Lamb, member of the famous 62 Group of master embroiderers and generally fabulous textile peeps.

Cuddly cushions and pillows

Posted by Elaine B on Tuesday Sep 30, 2014 Under Cushion, Gift, Japanese, Pampootie, Pillow
