Kind of where it started ..

Velvet Violets … ground breaking beginning …

This was one of the first pieces of applique I ever made.

Can I tell you that at the time it was a triumph, there was no such thing as commercial applique or decoration unless it was seriously fabulous and expensive.  It led to my wildly innovative and original period of Applique on windcheaters …yes, it had never been done and I was constantly stopped in the street to ask where I got it!

This was the work that started it all …

It may not look much now but it was fashionista then.

Still Love Pansy’s

The fun was in the colour choice …

The lily was made of satin backed crepe left over from a shirt.

One for the kids on the wall ….
