A new look.

I've given my blog a new simpler look and hope you like it. I've been 'awol' for so long so it's good to say Hello…

I'm loving my course at Somerset College of Art and Design, it's hard work and very time consuming but it's wonderful to be part of such a inspiring and creative environment.

My stitching has taken a back seat to painting and drawing but as it's the holidays I gave myself a little treat .
I designed and embroidered this little Etui.

 It took a while to decide on how to work on the construction, but then came the real pleasure of  stitching the design.

The pearls make the edges look pretty too

The pockets are to hold your stitching needs and the centre is a little pincushion.

2014 will be busy for me but I'm looking forward to it.

Happy New year to you all too.
xox Angela.

Have a wonderful New Year!

Hello Dear Angela,
So nice to see you back here with your new look blog. I think it's so uplifting at times to make these small changes in line with how are creativity changes.
Happy to hear that you are gaining lots of inspiration from Art and Design college taking you into new fields of ideas and experimentation.
I wish you lots of luck and love your new little Etui so beautifully sewn and beaded. It must be a fulfilling project after what you have been doing.
Hugs from downunder,
