I stitch everywhere

During my recent journey down south we explored the stunningly beautiful Esperance region.  It was here my good friend Alex volunteered to model my designs so I could have some images of my latest work. I hope you agree the landscape, model and design is pretty good.


Stitching on the shores of pristine waters of  many of the beautiful bays around Esperance and the Le Grand National Park

Even the wildlife was happy to see my designs.

I stitch everywhere

It’s true I stitch everywhere, so have decided to share where I take my needle and thread and what I create. Nature is a prime influence on my design sensibility.  Bought up in the forest of south west Australia instilled in me a real appreciation of nature. I feel energised amongst the trees, on the beach and in wide open spaces. In Australia we have this in bucket loads. Over the next week I will post photos of my latest journey south to Esperance and back along the track between Cape Lewin and Cape Naturalist. I am interested in where other people stitch and would love to hear your story.

Our first stop was and ENERGETIC climb up the highest mountain in the south west (tiny by European standards). Before descending the peak of Bluff Knoll I sat and stitched a few components of a necklace that featured in a photo shoot a few days later.

Back in Australia

I returned from 5 months travelling through Europe and took quite some time to settle.  I never know what inspiration I have gathered along the way or what I will create as a result or my travelling, looking, touching and dreaming.

By coincidence I arrived in Milan in the midst of Fashion Week.  What amazing unplanned timing.  I loved it.
