Sore knees, icicles and pockets.............

are you getting fed up with this bloody weather i am, i've fallen over 4 times since christmas not all because of too many small sherries. The last fall left me with horrible bruised knees and it happened practically on my own doorstep. it seems more snow is on the way tonight but i will attempt to get to malvern hills college tomorrow for the new term.





Here's a nice picture of icicles on the passion flower by my studio door, wish they'd bugger off now......roll on spring i say.







However i have been working in between falling overs, i'm writing a magazine project based on 17th century pockets ladies wore underneath their petticoats. This is the prototype, it's hanging off my belt and i made it exactly the same size as the ones on the V&A website but i would say i think it's a bit big for foiled and machine embroidered velvet it doesn't bend very well. so i'm making a smaller one for mobiles and purses, i'll put in on here when i'm finished.






I always think that at the end of the day i switch the lights out in the studio but i've forgotten my sewing machine it's such a sad and mournful sight......

night night x

Love the contemporary adaptation of an old textile! And it's useable and practical too !! :)
