For those of you wanting to watch me look like a right wally .... BUT convince the lovely Kirstie Allsopp that Machine embroidery is the coolest craft ( and the only one I know) please see that link.  Its a year in November since it was on the television but a few people have been asking me for the link.

The machine embroidery bit starts at 7 mins 40 seconds.....

I cringe every time I see it!

But thats SHOWBIZ!!!!

  1. Hi Louise
    Ive been inspired by your work for the last few months. Ive moved my contemporary acrylic canvas work into a new realm by adding hand embroidery, beadwork & sheet leaf. I love the mixed media feel of textures, finishes and colours all together.
    I loved watching your video , Im really keen to get a machine to make my ideas translate faster, so its very motivating seeing how you work.
    I would have loved to have seen your show to.
    I get rather passionate and excited about it all, so please excuse my gushing, I've been developing for a long time & only now am starting to feel the style and feel that I like coming through more and more.
    I just had to make contact.
    Keep on doing your fabulousness & look forward to seeing more of your wonderful creations.



I love to hear your comments and thanks for looking at my bloggerobbajob.
