Twenty:Eleven - Its All Over

Well our degree show finally opened last night at the Art Gallery in Church Square, Hartlepool. We all had a fantastic night at the show as well as at our after party! Although it is really sad that its all over now after 3 years of hard work!

Memories . . .


Now that am finished with my Final Major Project, I have time to relax and do some less stressful things like finally getting to put together a scrapbook of all the memories my mam made in her life and make a special keepsake for everyone to look back on in years to come . . . .

Been having a little play around with my samples and seeing what they would look like as garments. Pretty pleased with the outcome and hope they look as good in my Degree Show!

Embroidery


































Some of my embroidery from the first year of my degree - this was probably one of the best embroidery projects i have done to date as i couldnt use print and had to ensure they looked like my drawings so i paid extra attention to the smallest of details - something i should probably go back to when doing my major project!

Creepy Crawlies . . . .



this is some of my work from this time last year . . . . i quite enjoyed this project (despite the wisdom tooth traumas throughout!) the final four samples travelled to Indigo in Paris with me and were almost sold to a buyer who wanted to use them for a wedding dress! its a shame that it never happened because i would have loved to have seen the outcome - i imagine it being weirdly fantastic :)
