Stitch stitching

I decided I didn't like the combination of the gold and bronze scales I've been chopping, as the gold ones are too shiny and make the bronze look dull. Since the bronze are nice on their own I've decided to transform a dress I never wear with them.

More scales

I finished a bag full of the bronze ones, and started with gold.It's quite therapeutic really!

Gold pieces

I have a load of gold/bronze scraps left from the Angel costume, and so I've decided to reshape them into scales. I've thought I'll make a gold dress for a while, may as well get chopping and building a supply!

Presentation time!

This week I did a slide show presentation at the Blackpool Embroiderer's Guild, speaking about my creative work and theatre work, and showing lots of photos. I also took some dresses and other small pieces to show. It was a lovely friendly group, so a nice setting to do my first presentation since university!

Dress in a day

I've put this together today for my mum who wanted a red carpet style dress for a fancy dress evening. I've used materials I already had in stock, it's nice to use some bits up! Just need to had a few sparkly crystals ands a zip, and hope it fits!
