bloemenmarkt amsterdam.

beautiful bloemen ( :

a second helping of amsterdam.


a sneaky last minute decision for a quick trip to holland with my friend hannah. i love how quickly you can be in another country that is so so different to where you were in the morning. admittedly we got very very lost!.. but in the end it was a good thing as we saw lots of lovely things and lovely places that we wouldnt have seen if we knew how to read the ten maps we had with us ( :

more embroidery..

small sections of embroidery from my sample pieces for my last project.. sorry about the fabric ripples! the silk bamboo was dyed/dip dyed with cochineal. this fabric was then kiss cut on a laser cutter then i worked into them with a bit of stitch ( :

embroidered.

a few examples of some practice embroideries from my last project. i really like the simple line stitches with fades into different colours and how they compare to actually filling with the thread. i had not done embroidery since i was a little girl so it was quite fun to get into it again and experiment with different stitches. the colours of threads are from my projects colour pallete.

danielle london.

the cutest mobile phone case i have ever come across ( : danielle makes them all by hand and you can see her other designs on her etsy store at: etsy.com/shop/daniellelondon
