Hi Guys!

Sorry I've been terrible at blogging lately, I've been a bit of a busy bee! A couple of weekends ago I went to Edinburgh to visit my lovely friend, then last week I went on a research trip to London with my uni lovelies; Robyn and Julie. We call it research...however our version of research is wandering around beautiful shops, boutiques and fabric shops...rather idyllic ♥

The highlight of our trip was definitely the Zandra Rhodes afternoon tea at the Mandeville Hotel...look at all the beautiful cakes we had to eat!! I would 100% recommend this if you're in London and fancy a delicious treat.

Hope your past few weeks have been as fabulous as mine! Now its back to the studio and back to hard work

Mondays at Uni

Monday always feels like the longest day, especially when the clock says six and I know we still have a good few hours of working time before I can head home to my pj's! So I thought I'd take a quick break to post about what I've been working on today.

My desk - looking rather tidy today!

From my original paper layouts I have started to experiment with different weights of fabric - this development sheet shows a few examples of the types of vilene I have been using.

Instead of embroidering hundreds of samples just to do it all over again on my final pieces, I have started to draw out my final designs to demonstrate the sitches and beads I will be using. This is my first neck piece design.

Have a lovely evening!
