I've been experimenting for a new project lately and was out taking photos of the lovely town where I live, which is so photogenic, you can hardly take a bad picture!!
It's full of character with old stone buildings all higgeldy-piggeldy and cobbled lanes......
then I came back and interpreted them on my sewing machine in stitches......
Really enjoyed doing this. Was so completely different from sewing cushions, made me feel like a kid again!! Have a productive and 'kid-like' week! xx


  1. I always feel childlike when I do deliberate wonky stitching. So liberating and yet I love the finished effect.

  2. Now you are just showing off!!!
    You're a genius Mrs and getting amazingly expert at using your machine for free embroidery......
    [Ooh Tanya I won a giveaway with a prize of 693 buttons, it was a guess how many there are in a jar and I was closest with my 666, sign of the devil guess. I might be able to colour co-ordinate jars!!!!! The menfolk in my house do not understand why that is exciting but I just know you do!]

  3. Your little town looks ao beautiful with all those fabulous old buildings. You've done a great job re-creating it, very clever!

  4. This is fabulous!! the bestest thing to date! I love it! I love the blue sky and the sketchy sewing lines beautiful! I hope your doing a series and getting them framed for art week! fab!xx

  5. Fantastic! I love the way you have interpreted your town in fabric & stitches, what will you do with it now? x

  6. Wow! That is so clever! It is brilliant!

  7. Whoa, that's amazing! That makes me want to pull my machine out right now and practice, practice, practice. How inspiring!
