Artists work in many media. Some paint pictures, throw pots, carve wood, write music, take photos, wield torches and some create wonderful images with stitches. I found this artist quite by accident when she very humbly asked if she could post photos of her needlework on the Sewing Cubit. Come with me and I'll introduce her to you!
Dear Connie, glad you like Neil's tiger, it took a while to do but he was very pleased with it whenI got it framed. It is on the wall above his bed, keeping en eye on him and Sarah, as I can't be there to do so!!! I had the three grandaughter over for the day yesterday and my Connie (aged 15)brought a lovely soft toy of a dog that she had made it was white with black ears and lovely sparkly brown eyes. We sat for ages trying to think of a name for him and ended up with "snowy" I hope she carries on with toy making, she made some lovely aprons last year at school. Sarah the middle grand daughter wants to teach domestic science, on the last day of term when they had assembly she was called out in front of the whole school (all girls) and was presented withan award for her work in maths, she was embarrased! Elizabeth the youngest one wants to be a vet, but she is allergic to fur when I suggested that she was too ladylike to be putting her hands inside cows, she replies "Oh grandma, I shall only do small animals!" So pleased with all the nice comments on my needlework, I got a picture of poppies back from the framers yesterday and I am very pleased with it I will get Neil to put a picture of it on the thread so you can all see it .
I do hope you enjoy these as much as I have making them.
