the softest colours

selection of trimmings

a little package of threads, lace, fabric, vintage threads.... over to you to create


When creativity calls and you don’t know where to start, I love creating a mood board . It frees you to explore various sources ie. Pinterest Instagram, art books , photographs, favourite colours, anything that inspires you. Start collecting bits of fabric , buttons , threads, words, photographs , whatever fills you with joy . When taking a flat lay photograph , take a few shots and try different colours . (Phones are great for editing) it can be good to see it in colour and in black and white . Just keep experimenting

This little selection is a delight and will inspire you to stitch ( or just to look at if you so wish ) 3 DMC embroidery threads / 2 vintage wooden spoils with cream and pink thread / a pretty button / vintage bridal lace ( about 20cm square ) /a floral cotton by Quiltgate ( 10cms x 15cms ) /a piece of lace (20cms) /a sliver of dyed pink silk ……
