  • When I work with multiple colours of resin at once, the result is always a bit unpredictable - and usually really cool. Love how the colours settled themselves in this moody birch bark block.

  • I’ve been playing around with repetition and I like where this is going!  The thread is naturally dyed with madder root and stitched on organic cotton. If you want to pick up some of this thread for yourself my shop is stocked up (link in profile)!

  • PSA: REPAIR! YOUR! CLOTHES! ⚡️I have a story time for you all — just a few days ago, I was rushing to get ready, pulling on one of my favorite black rompers that has been my tried and true go-to every summer for years now. The shoulder strap snapped cleanly off, and alas, one of my four summer outfits was gone. Or so I thought! What an easy-peasy fix. I’m breaking out the sewing gear and fixing this baby up — our time together hasn’t ended just yet 😅😂 Buuuuut, in all seriousness, do y’all know there are SO MANY CLOTHES tossed into the landfill every single day just because of tiny hiccups like this?! Repair your clothes! It’s sooo important for sustainable fashion. A few stitches and voila! She’s brand new ✨💫 #fashionrevolution #sustainablefashion #repairdontreplace

  • How tidy are you? Do you like everything out and to hand or do you prefer clear surfaces and blank space?

It’s Tuesday today so that means my embroidery day as I build up a little collection of limited edition works which then go up into the webshop on the last Friday of each month. (Studio members get first dibs and then the link goes into my newsletter later in the day)

I took this photo yesterday afternoon of the bench that is next to my sewing machine. Untidied, un-arranged, but with rather nice light coming in the window. 
There is a half made doorstop, some piles of cut wool to be embroidered and the threads I like to have near at hand. You can see that the wall where I work used to have tiles on it, you can see that I’m neither neat nor organised. 
Showing my day - a 10 second photo, full of reality, potential, and life is what I meant when I talked about doing and Social media last week.

  • This magical elven princess, Luna, is currently #onmyartdesk! Today she will be getting her legs and arms attached and having a few more pearls and ice crystals added to her braided updo. Soon after, the patterns for her enchanting dress and shoes will be created! Luna has been patiently waiting to be ready for adoption and after this week, her wish will be granted!

  • I sometimes get asked which patterns on my site are the most popular. One of them is the Maybe Wine Will Help pattern, I think it just strikes a nerve in many people and they're all like "yaaaaasss queeeennnn..." 😂 Of course, the word wine can be substituted with your vice of choice with the pattern customization option, so if you have any questions about how that works just comment below. You can buy this lovely vintage-inspired pattern at https://peacockandfig.com/product/maybe-wine-will-help-cross-stitch-pattern/ ❤️🍷

  • 107’s cover star beauty is this mini modern patchwork quilt by our fave @clothandcrescent 🥰💖 Sometimes huge complex quilts can be a bit daunting (especially when you’ve already got x42718 WIPs on the go 😂) which is why we adore Lorna’s mini version 🎉Colour, geometry, style - this patchwork has got it all 👏🏻 Swipe right for detail ➡️ #molliemakers

  • It’s officially moving week! Today I cleaned up this lovely room.... my future weaving studio! I’m stoked to get settled in and get back to my art.  Thanks for being so patient with me during this busy time. #inhomestudio

  • Swipe ➡️ to see what comes with a Mirrix Loom that has a shedding device! .
Four warp coils: These are used to space your warps for tapestry or bead weaving.
.
A shedding device, warping bar and spring bar. The shedding device makes weaving faster and easier, allowing you to place your fiber or beads between the warp threads rather than weaving them through. The warping bar allows you to warp for continuous warping, which means you can weave a piece longer than the length of your loom! The spring bar prevents your warp threads from popping out of your warp coils when you change the shed or when you’re traveling with your loom or moving it around.
.
The shedding device handle allows you to easily change the position of your shedding device. This can be replaced with a Spencer Power Treadle.
.
Two wrenches for tension and shedding device adjustments.
.
Wooden clips for holding your warping bar during warping and your shedding device the rest of the time.
.
Fold-out legs. All looms 12” and larger have two of these. These allow your Mirrix to stand steadily on a table.
.
On-loom tensioning system. The ability to get good tension is the most important quality of any loom! A Mirrix makes achieving perfect warp tension easy.
