So this is my first bit of hand-sewn patchwork inspired by the V&A exhibition.So far I am using it as a decorative wall hanging but I may transform it into something else at a later date. I am also using it as inspiration for some digital print's I am working on featuring my own small liberty style florals and bright colours.

Inspired by the mad jelly mongers Bompass and Parr whos 'ziggurat of flavour' I went in at the Big Chill Festival I decided to make some candles that look like little jelly's.
This idea sprang from my desire to have a go at creating some candles, a recent collection of vintage jelly moulds I have acquired and of course my exposure to some of Bompass and Parr's evaporated fruit.(which is absolutely bizarre).

I've been busy trying to build up a array of products to sell at a craft stall, these are my latest creations.
On optic white cotton they are machine and hand embroidered and include a few beads/sequins. I am also going to try out similar techniques on different colored fabrics next.
