Wedding Sandles

Back in summer I was commissioned to design and make some bare foot sandles for a bride,
I have just been sent photos of the bride modelling them on honeymoon in Thailand

 I am really pleased with them, they look so pretty, 
I made the lace and hand stitched them together adding ribbon sequins and gem stones.
I do like it when something works out like it did in my head :-)

Decorating My Jacket

The other day I got this design and thought it would look great on the back of one of my fleece jackets
 I loved the design as soon as I saw it
 22 different shades of thread went to make up the design
 and the stitch out time was over 4 hours
 watching it all stitch out and build up was fascinating 
now I know that Martin wont be pinching my jacket, we have lots of fleece jackets and they all look the same, I will have to look for some more designs to do my other jackets.
