Cabbages and Sprouts

Well the new mobile phone has finally decided to communicate with me but let's say that I'm a girl who likes to press buttons!!!

On a creative front I have finished the embellished sample above. When I put a lot of hand stitch onto pieces it some how feels like going back to my routes as I did lots of embroidery first before becoming a quilter. I hand dyed buttons and the three large do-nut shapes came from a charity shop belt which I also hand dyed. There are beads from broken necklaces, washers of varying sizes and some green net from a shower wash thing. I also used a broken zip. Here is more detail -

I used a hand dyed cotton base which was crinkled first to create more texture. I'll put my hand up though and admit that the crinkle fabric was for an Expedition Quilt Art Challenge, all embellishments for my Diploma


  1. This is absolutely lovely!!!! I love all your creativity in this piece!!!!!

  2. Extremely effective well done Jan xx

  3. I 'm not thinking cabbages and sprouts!!! - more gorgous fresh spring!

  4. I thought the green net was close stitching at first, very effective and a lovely piece. x
