Wednesday - Horace met a girl, she was small and she was very pretty, he thought he was in love, he was afraid....

 Thank you again to everyone who entered my Give-away.  A fantastic response.
I will be having another very soon.
I have been enjoying working on a series of Envelope Artworks.
Quite difficult to work on such a small scale.  The placement of each element takes time and a great deal of thought.   Embroidering on fragile paper ain't no joke either!  I hope you like them, I am pleased with how they have come together...a celebration of our four legged best friends.
All are sold but for this one below, in my Etsy shop.

A note to say that I have re-arranged my Workshop at Weston Park for handmade bracelet/cuff.
The Workshop will now be held on Saturday 28th September....   here for details.
Thank you for stopping by. x

brilliant as always. Just a thought but have you tried using a support for the fragile envelope? Perhaps stitch and tear, then remove when finished.

A shooting star... across the sky, hang on to her shirt-tails if you dare.

The workshops are a cinch, still working with the knowledge imparted by the great Viv at the one I went to. Book now to avoid disappointment.

Such original designs - I really do love them. Never seen anything like it, which is a good thing.

Oh such detail in your mail art cards Viv.
Each piece is exquisite and so beautifully thought out.
You're an inspiration!
