sewing and shears

loved the enormous shears that you could buy from alistair hendy’s store, but also discovered william gee on the kingsland road – right next door to my hairdressers salon 496 – (Eri keeps my hair looking young)- it was like walking into a shop from the 1970’s – rows of materials, ribbons, scissors and threads at unbelievably cheap prices.   there is always something beautiful about rows of cotton reels together…. like art installation pieces.

Jane Brocket’s book , the gentle art of stitching  is an inspiration for reaching for those needles to create something that you will be proud of.  photographing all the designs definitely inspired me!
