It has been a while since I posted, not because i've been lazy but because I have been the complete opposite. I had a craft stall at the Christmas faire of the school I work at and it was my boyfriends birthday. So I've been busy making all sorts. I will hopefully take some photos of all I have created so you can believe me. To start off with this is my Folksy Angle competition entry. The brief was to make a christmas/ festive themed decoration using recycled material only. This was quite a challenge but my saving grace was the fact I am a huge hoarder. I never thought I would say that was a good thing, but my stash hopefully has payed off. I made a Merry Christmas plaque. I used a piece of old fencing as a base and a zip as a hanger. The holly has been made from old book pages with vintage button berries. The Robin has been made from an old pair of linen trousers and left over fabric from a pair of curtains I have made in the past. The text was printed on scrap linen with an antique printing set. The closing date is Sunday so fingers crossed.
Hey, my name is Kate and I live in the heart of the Cotswolds, England. I have always been making things since I was a small child and was set projects to keep me occupied during the holidays. Now I am incapable of sitting still and relaxing. I have to have at least one project or even 10 projects on the go to keep me sane!
I have many keen interests in the visual arts which has led me to complete a BA Hons Contemporary Textile degree as well as lots of other additional courses in photography, Print, Film, Jewellery making and metalsmithing.
This blog is my way of showcasing projects I have completed or work in progress as well as documenting things I have found inspiring on the web.
