‘Laugh Often’ is a gorgeous blissful marriage of old and new…
I have combined my love of slow stitching with a little machine embellishing to create a layered textile collage using wonderful ingredients such as British Tweed, snippets of Irish Linen, a drape of 1950’s wedding lace all combined with a patch of 1980’s floral cotton.
The story behind…
Here in the Cambridgeshire Fens in the UK, we encounter many grey miserable drizzly sort of days. I started this collage on one of those type of days but whilst assembling all my little pieces for the design I came across this little quote and knew it just had to be included in the finished collage.
As I slowly stitched, those little words became the focus of my overall design turning it into a collage full of warmth.
