Well its that time of year again for weddings. Not that I am going to any!
I have been working on a couple of commissions for weddings recently and thought I would share them with you.
This first piece is a padded heart.
Its a bit of a rushed photo taken just before I delivered it so its a bit dark. I had been playing around about how to mount it and suddenly hit on having a mount next to the glass and it seemed so right. Its for a couple who have been together a long time and it was important to them to have a handmade wedding. it sounded a lovely event with bunting and vintage china.
This second piece is for a friend who is marrying in August. I am embroidering a belt/waistband for her. She had an amazing year having spent most of it in bed! She had a baby and suffered from terrible SPD. I have added a link and it sounds such a harmless thing but she ended up hospitalized on morphine. However she is one of the happiest people I know and has come through it all smiling with a gorgeous baby and a partner who has seen it ALL and is still desperate to marry her! Unfortuanley I am away on holiday for the wedding so I don't get to goThe flower motif is taken from some lace on the dress. I still need to finish the piece but just thought I ought to show you that I do some sewing occasionally!
