Looks easy to follow, can't wait to try
sailors & lost souls
sometimes little pieces of our personal histories are set adrift and lose their way. foraging in old barns and forgotten corners, i search out the pieces that speak to me and help them find their way home.
in between, i curl up with a needle and thread and create my own bit of story. stitch by stitch, i coax vintage fabrics into complex little creatures who are apt to ask for a cup of tea or a fistful of cookies.
it's a small, barefoot life. and i wouldn't have it any other way.

Around the web
searching for beautiful old things whispering histories.
expect signs of wear, years of patina and imperfections that are just right.
they make each piece unique, and tell a story that draws you in.
when i'm not hunting for great finds, i'm happily stitching away...
creating little animals and odd creatures with their own individual personalities.
it's a slow form of people watching, every little stitch creates a whole new expression.
