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!

  1. I hope the weather clears up for you to be able to enjoy some lovely garden parties! I saw the weather was looking a bit miserable when I was watching the Jubilee celebrations on TV.

    Your crafts and ideas are so beautiful. You are very clever!I love those gorgeous stockings you are wearing in your gorgeous photo too!

    My weekly Say G'Day Party has just started! Please pop on over if you have a minute-I'd be thrilled if you could join in and share this great post.

    Best wishes,

    1. Hi Zara, I live love to design but i do find a pleasure in making all my own designs into these creations.

      Designer/Makers work so hard and are up against such commercial competition.

      Buy and handmade is a personal mission of mine.

      Thanks for poping by.

      If you have an suggestions on good follow widgets please let me know.

      I am really please you like me little birdies.
