Winter stock spew

 Just thought I would put up some pictures of the Christmas stock I have been making. I have literally been just designing and making this last week, my brain is doing its usual thing were it wont give me any down time as is goes on and on and on and on and on.............. my hands cant keep up. You have to go with the flow at these times as the inspiration and idea spew doesn't last so I just embrace the caos and fuel up with soup.

 I have been making lots of wall art/collage pieces in a sewn, drawn painted, glued kind of way
and have designed a Tamar swan cushion of which I have printed 3 to try them out. I embroider the swan in a mix of whites and creams and the plumage is stitched in French knots, chain stitch and running stitch I think it looks quite effective. Problem is knowing when to stop with these things. once I have a cuppa in hand I can get quite carried away with my needle and threads.
