Enliven A Window

Well the day arrived, and my work is now proudly displayed 
in the shop window of Emmaus in Eastleigh. 

I have been working on this for what feels like for ever,
so to see it so proudly displayed in all its 
thrifty vintage glory warmed my
 creaftily creative heart

My work will next be displayed at the
Enliven Festival
on the 7th of July on the Leigh Road Recreation ground
where it will be a part of a static display and a fashion show.

Enliven Update

As i said in my last post i have been busy squirrelling away on my Enliven Project.

Well the time has now come to hang my work in the window of the 
the Eastleigh Emmaus Shop.

But before i spend all of tomorrow installing my work,
 i thought I should give you all a sneak peak 
 of the things i have been working on.

Below are some the accessories that accompany 
my garments, they hopefully invoke a feeling of
 Summer Time Tea Parties

The accessories are made from recycled upholstery fabrics and vintage linens
with appliqu├ęd free machine embroidered birds and silk lined 

Here is the Garden Party Tea Dress i have made.

This is made from vintage liberty print interior farbic with a handprinted 
100% cotton bodice with vintage lace detail and finished with an 
embroidered bird brooch.

Here is an extra sneak peak!
I am a very shy person and because of my Guerrilla Crafting 
tendencies i tend not to publicise picutres of myself too much.

But here a sneak peak to some promotional shots that were 
taken for this years 
Enliven 2012.

Footnote: Please be kind! and only i wish we had the weather here in the uk for some 
Garden Parties!
