Cushions | Wall Hangings


Here's some of my latest textile sewing projects I have been working on. My current twin passions are for free embroidery and hand-dyed fabrics. Up to now, I have been incorporating these into cushions but lately I have been been developing some decorative wall hangings in a larger format. I hope you find them inspirational.


Time For Lunch?

This image is inspired by the art of Charlie Harper and worked in my own hand-dyed fabrics with applique and machine embroidery.

Thatched Cottage

Inpired by the quirky drawings of Ptolemy Dean, this image is the dream cottage that many of us aspire to. While we may not be able to afford the bricks and mortar version, we can keep the dream alive on our sofas rendered in hand dyed fabric and machine embroidery.

Street Scene

The rows of Edwardian houses resplendent on this Sussex street are a tranquil reminder of times past. Worked in the soft chalky shades of my hand-dyed fabrics with accents of fabric paint and machine embroidery, they bring a touch of nostalgia to any interior.

Ice Blue

Worked in the enduring log cabin design, this cushion is made from patterned white and blue quilter's cotton and finished with a hand-sewn folded binding.

Brighton Pier

Living on the South coast, I am not too far from Brighton and I visit it regularly. The imposing pier is a great favourite with tourists and locals and is one of the few great seaside structures left in Britain.

Steam Train

I am an occasional volunteer at the local Bursledon Brickworks Industrial Museum and love to leaf through their collection of old steam train magazines. This bolster cushion image is an interpretation of one of the nostalgic images.

Art House

Captured on a peaceful, sunny afternoon, this row of Brighton houses, with their pastel frontages, have a rather 'arty' look about them.

Wall Hangings

All At Sea

Pieced from my own hand-dyed fabrics then appliqued and quilted, this piece shows the sea in all its different facets, from the peace of coastal cruising to the monsters of the deep.

Memories of Mine

This piece recalls the 'good old days' of the mining industry in my Scottish home town when employment was plentiful and the town had a sense of community.
