needles and pins

these past weeks my ever enquiring creative mind has been journeying along a sewing path, in fact there are two paths running parallel.

One fairly structured, neatly folded lengths of pure grey merino wool, inky blue linen, oiled and waxed cotton, and an armful of patterns and notions.  All awaiting the alchemy that happens when scissors,  fabric, pins and sewing machine  work their magic.  All courtesy of Merchant and Mills in Rye, they have a great on-line shop but there is nothing like a visit, getting to meet the owners and feeling the cloth in one’s hand………………..

My other path of threads and fabrics has taken me along the route of  a totally hand stitched product,  repurposed fabrics, frayed edges, hand dying and embroidered embellishments, a lot of this is still in my head and sketches.  I want to create a “cloth” something that speaks about the world I inhabit internally.  A world away from machines, from the world’s hardened edges, a soft yet powerful place where the seeds of creativity are birthed.  These two ladies helped help spring this journey into life
