The end of HNC...the beginning of summer?

It seems like a lifetime ago that I was packing away my sketchbooks and looking forward to a summer of craft fairs, no coursework and no heavy bags to carry...but here we are at the end of July and there have been a serious lack of sunny days! Sad face. Fortunately, I have been able to make the most of the cold and rainy days by staying cosy and warm indoors and creating a range of cute handmade gifts and cards for my wee arts and crafts shop Oh So Lovely (please take a look!)

I am also now the lucky recipient of a beautiful sparkly engagement ring from my gorgeous boyfriend of 6 years...happy times :) Cue dreams of a pretty vintage tea party wedding!

But before I get carried away, I would like to share some photographs from the Dundee College end of year exhibition, in particular of course...the Textile Art collection. Enjoy!

My textile wall hanging...

Inspired by pebble beaches at the West coast of Scotland

I created this piece using embellished silk organza, dyes, bleach and freehand embroidery detail.

My paper samples

This piece was inspired by the lines of the human body

I love the stitching on this one!
