My Wife the Textile Artist.

My wife Jane is a textile artist and goes by the name of “The Riverside Crafter”, she just loves anything to do with needle craft and especially patchwork, Applique and embroidery. She recently asked me to photograph some of her most recent work which is destined to become cushions – of course, I was more than happy to oblige and had good fun doing it.

I think that her work is rather good and in the spirit of sharing I am going to show you (we have given all of the works names!):-

This is Hector – a dog appliqued onto blue fabric.

This is Rosie.

This is Ermintrude – a cow appliqued onto brown felt and named after the cow from the ‘Magic Roundabout’.

This is an example of English Paper Piece – Jane is particularly proud of this one as she learned this art from her late grand mother.

Jane’s version of a hare staring up at the moon – dyed cloth appliqued onto denim layers.

Flora is an appliqued textile cow onto a felt background.

The cow compositions are loosely based on Scottish Highland Cattle; you can see the influences with the tartan and the large horns.

If you enjoyed seeing Jane’s work, pop along to her fledgling blog at:-
