I have finished!!!! Yep, I displayed my degree show pieces last Friday, and then handed in all my back up work on my desk in the studio on Tuesday! So now I can share photos of all of my work. I decided to take photos in the park, to be against natural textures and for better light. First up is my cushions, 3 smaller 45 by 45cm cushions, and one floor cushion at 50 by 60cm. Each is hand screen-printed and has a freehand machine embroidery design on one side. The smaller cushions are hand tufted with 4 fabric covered buttons.

Still Stitching.

I'm still busy stitching my final pieces ready for my degree show in a week! I did a few final prints yesterday, and am about done with sewing, just a few last touches and things that need making up, and then I will be moving on to putting together all my back up work ready to be marked.

I did this print of a tree trunk drawing, and wasn't going to use it, but its growing on me, so I will!

S Club Hollywood getting me through long days of sewing!

Watching the baseball while sewing late into the night! 

Even more sewing, just in case anyone was unclear on what I've been doing! 

And my slightly cluttered desk.
I will be photographing my final products in a few days, so I will have more images to share soon!

In Progress.

I am in the middle of creating my final pieces for my degree show, as well as putting together all supporting work for assessment, and deciding on how to present my portfolio of work. Busy busy!
I just wanted to share a few close-up peeks at my play quilt which I am in the middle of screen-printing and stitching, ready for me to sew it up hopefully at the end of this week!
