Contemporary textile arts

Two sites this morning as I am on a bookmark clean up campaign. The first I have been browsing around is the personal website of Jill Smith a contemporary embroiderer who produces colourful and joyous wall hangings

The second textile artist is a Danish felter Birgitte Krag Hansen who has provided a site that illustrates her sculptural felting techniques, numerous projects and descriptions of a series of open air felting workshops she did including a nature trail for children.

Hansen’s three-dimensional pieces ooze personality and charm.

Up and down stitch added to Stitch collection

This is just a quick note today, as I am back at work after three weeks break. I just wanted to say that yesterday I spent a busy afternoon completing a site clean up and I added Up and down buttonhole stitch to the Stitch Collection.

I always feel adding a stitch is major event as I rarely seem to manage to find the time to do it. I am hoping that this blog will stimulate my enthusiasm for the project as I have a number of other samples worked and hope to get them online soon. Anyway I hope the information is useful.
