Cipher




A textile piece made using the embellisher on black velveteen, with machine stitching in metallic thread. It belongs to the 'In More Than One Language' series of work. It comes ready to frame or mount as you prefer, but I would recommend framing; metallic thread is somewhat delicate.

Cipher measures 8" by 15" and costs £40, plus £1.50 postage in the UK. I accept sterling cheques or payment by Paypal; overseas customers are welcome, please contact me direct for information on shipping costs; I will invoice you separately using PayPal.

Hand Dyed Fabric : Three Fat Eighths

Three Fat Eighths (9" by 11") in complementary colours, great for adding to your stash, for trying out hand dyes for the first time, or for applique; the colour variations in hand dyes make them ideal for using in applique, as many colours can appear in one piece of fabric. Colours may vary from screen to screen, but the photographs were taken in natural light, and are a very good representation of the colours.
The cloth is cotton poplin, with a high thread count, ideal for machine quilting. Click on each picture to get a larger image.

All of my hand dyes are unique, all are washed and rinsed multiple times to avoid dye runs; however, I do recommend that you wash them before you use them if the project will be washed.

Please feel free to email me with any questions you have about these handdyes.

The cost of these three fat eighths is £5.00, with £1.50 postage in the UK. If you are based elsewhere, please contact me direct for details (email address is in my profile). At present, I only accept PayPal from overseas buyers, but will accept sterling cheques in the UK; to purchase using PayPal, please use the buttons below. To purchase by cheque, please contact me by email.

NOTES :

I work in a smoke free environment, but share my space with four cats. I do my best not to get any cat hair in packages; any that is there, is free of charge!

Abstracted I



Abstracted I is a postcard sized art quilt, made from hand painted and dyed cotton, stitched with rayon threads and edged with metallic thread. It fits any postcard sized standard frame, or may be mounted on canvas, whatever you choose to do.

Abstracted costs £7, with £1.50 postage in the UK. If you are based elsewhere, please contact me direct for details (email address is in my profile). At present, I only accept PayPal; to purchase, please use the buttons below.

NOTES :
All of my work is one of a kind, from tiny postcards to large paintings. I never make the same thing twice, though I do work in series, so I will work with the abstracted theme again.
