In these difficult times, I continue to work from home. I am only selling items which can be posted via the Post Box which is just outside my gate. I have a stock of stamps and packaging materials and, therefore, can stay open for business without imposing extra risk on other individuals. As usual, accessories featuring original embroidery, in association with felting, hand dyeing and fabric painting may be found in my other Folksy shop - 'Lynwoodcrafts'.
SALE - previously listed at £45.
A brightly coloured, textured, mixed media hanging , incorporating hand-painted and hand-dyed scraps of vintage linens and lace, combined with hand embroidery, hand-painted lace flowers, paper roses and embroidered flowers and foliage.
Reminiscent of a densely planted rose border, many techniques and materials have been used to create this hanging. The colour palette has been taken from the portion of hand-painted, vintage lace which finishes the lower edge of the hanging. The fabric used for the background of the border has been hand-painted in the same inks. The sky is a portion of hand-dyed recycled table cloth. The embroidery has been worked through a backing of thick felt-like 'interfacing'. The reverse of the hanging is neatened with a panel of recycled fabric.
This is one of a series of hangings aimed at re-purposing vintage needlework which has been a little too much used and loved to continue in its original purpose.
This pale blue hanging loop is stitched from button-hole stitch in cotton thread. PLEASE NOTE - Image 4 shows the hanging suspended from a picture hook which is supported by a white, fabric covered board - this board is not part of the hanging.
Free First Class Signed for postage included to UK addresses.
Height: 31.5 cm approx.

I enjoyed hand-painting samples, from my recycled linen collection, using some lovely water-based inks. Vintage lace, and paper roses add a lovely texture.
