Blogging break, (photo heavy post)

Life seems to have been rather hectic, but not filled with many textile- heavy items, except of course my younger son becoming a teenager.  What with party preparations

and the sophisticated palate of a London-born 13 yr old – homemade sushi and sausage anyone?

there hasn’t been a lot of time for these latest printing efforts at Morley

or these stitched samples for the contemporary Quilt annual challenge

or yet another Jacqui Harvey back-stitched bird

but there was time to enjoy an evening of chicken stuffing at Plum’s and to be overcome by opening the stitched picture commissioned from Stephanie Littlechild.

Based on this photo of my sons,

Steph stitched this 9 x 7 inch picture

As she incorporated pieces and shreds of my own fabric from significant textile items that were precious to my sons when they were younger,  it invokes so many memories, I could look at it for hours.


  1. Lovely to see you back in blog land :-) gob smacked by the stitched picture, it's absolutely awesome! Thanks for sharing

  2. Welcome back! Sausage and sushi? And a rather nice cake, I'm guessing by the box? Hmm...well, whatever the boy wants, I guess!
    I still love the picture, and the printing, if either of them would like a new home, please bear me in mind!

  3. The printing efforts reminded me of Acantharians. See to see what I mean. There's a rich seam of inspiration to be mined amongst oceanic plankton :)
