Embroidery of a nose? Yes. Started with a tricky bit to test creating colour, volume and texture with stitches.

Continuous-ish line drawing from life stem stitched onto butter yellow faux suede*. Test piece for later final work towards exhibition pieces.*It is incredibly hard to capture the colour properly - but trust me.

In the highest room of the tallest tower is my lot’s show… it’s the farthest room, and as Access students we weren’t given half the resources or range of the younger ones… But it looks good… and I’m pretty chuffed. If you can swing by City of Oxford College during 10-3 this week, or 10-2 on Saturday you can see them properly… or wait until the show is over for the (otherwise spoiler) photos. My work is on the left in the above photo and Kyomi Best's clever creepy heads to the right.

Hand pieced, hand quilted and hand finished seafood themed lobster centre tablemats. Made by me for me! 

The first ones were too small to catch any splash around a plate (making me crazy at suppers), hence the outer ring of burgundy hexagons here. Perfect.

Hand quilted around the design of a ‘scrap’ of wax fabric from Kigali, Rwanda then made it up into a bright modern cushion. This was a gift for the kind person who gave me the ‘scraps’ in the first place. 

I love Formula 1 and I love stitching - so here they both are together! Stitched image started from Adrian Meyers’ brilliant photos of Lewis Hamilton in F1 Racing Magazine… which I simplified.
