Store cupboard

posted in: Instagram 0

I’ve never thought to put all of my food pictures together before, but I’ve got quite the collection building up now!
.
Earlier in the year I asked you lovely lot for some advice on how to exhibit my work .. the resounding feedback was that I needed to build up a bit more of a body of work, and also that I needed to choose a few themes or collections of work to build up (all great advice!) which is what I went away and did!
.
So now I’ve ended up with nearly 20 food pictures (some literal and some tweaked) and the next thing I need to do is get them somewhere other than my workshop (which is starting to resemble a mini market) .
So I’m looking for more advice, and this time it’s where. Can you think of the perfect place to display these? Do you have the perfect space to show them? I’d really appreciate any ideas!
.
Hope you’re having a lovely weekend. Emma xx
.
PS a lot of these are available as prints and cards on my website and more will be coming soon #justacard .

Red or brown – Which do you prefer on your bacon sandwich?

Ps, hop over to my stories if you’d like to see a close up – I loved making the HP label, which my wonderful @aurifilthread 80wt was just perfect for.

Fresh Seafood

posted in: Instagram 0

I’m back and ready to start stitching! There will be a new foodie picture tomorrow, but meanwhile here’s a #tbt of a beach slightly closer to home
.
I made my seaside series of pictures last summer and this one is quite special to me as it was one of the first pictures I had made where I attempted stitchy calligraphy (the fresh seafood bit) but this planted a seed of interest and started me thinking about making my hendricks picture (although it would be a few months before I was brave enough to attempt it!) which set me off on a new and exciting path
.
That, and I love that little hut! .
Happy Thursday ??????

Bristol Balloons

posted in: Instagram 0

Pretty Bristol houses, beautiful Liberty print, hot air balloons … so many lovely things all in one picture, and a little reminder for me that heading home isn’t so bad!
.
This is available to buy as cards, A4 prints, embellished prints (with an extra hot air balloon embroidered on to the print) … and actually, I also since I’ve moved my workshop back to my house, i have the original that’s looking for a good home (drop me a DM if you’re interested if you’d like to save it from a life of being shut away in a cupboard – it’s about A0 size… I can measure if you’re interested!)

See the good

posted in: Instagram 0

We are becoming increasingly familiar with the concept of brain plasticity; that learning something new creates connections in our brain and that when practiced regularly, these connections become stronger and easier to activate. Typically we associate these changes with learning a tangible skill, whether that’s practising an instrument, learning a language, or playing a sport.
.
But in the same way that we can train our brains to learn a new skill, we can also train ourselves to see things more positively. Interventions that over time can re-wire our brains to see things more positively include practising mindfulness, doing something nice (acts of kindness boost happiness levels) consciously recognising 3 positives from our day … what do you do to see the good?
