A little about my work.....


Roses, roses and more roses....is what you will usually find in my work, from faded old pink roses to vivid raspberry roses. I started out making lovely pillows with vintage linens and cottage florals, and now have quite a few other signature items, which I will feature over the nxt week or so right here. I also have a couple of new designs coming soon, one an old favorite, and one something entirely new ~ I'll give a little hint.......think One of a Kind, think Mother's Day!!

A little about my textile art.....

My vintage fabric collages combine my love of vintage textiles and my love of words. Words are powerful and a beautiful phrase can evoke such emotion. My collage designs are built around the wise words of an old poet or author, which I handstitch in a simple lettering. I use vintage fabrics, laces, buttons, etc...all handstitched in a unique way to mirror the words - there is always a little mystery with the finished product, but if you look closely you will see the simple beauty of the words reflected in the design. I collect old vintage frames throughout the year to frame each collage in. Below is a sampling of some of my pieces....
