Oh to find a quiet place. To find a sense of peace in the midst of the craziness of life. The way in which I start my day, dramatically affects the way I cope and respond to the challenges that unfold throughout my day. It is here, sitting in my armchair by the window, with all the things you can see in this picture, that i find the practical help of God.
A variety of fabrics were used to show this morning scene. The intricate detail, such as the coffee cup and the glasses, were crafted through a mixture of free hand machine embroidery and hand embroidery. One cannot predict the various pressures, the unexpected news, the surprises and the joys that can meet us each day. I hope this inspires you to embrace where your help comes from.”
The image is printed on fine art card. The image itself measures approximately 6x8 and fits nicely in a standard 8x10 frame.
The print comes in a cellophane bag with firm backing board and a description of the meaning behind the print. Item will be shipped in a protective envelope.

Meet the Maker
Using antique fabrics and lace, I use my needle as my brush and fabrics as my paint to capture the word of God in the everyday.
As a child, growing up in Devon, I loved nothing more than spending hours with boxes, glue, tape and whatever I could get my hands on, to make and create a new project... Later as a primary school teacher I was always using my creativity in the classroom. It wasn't until I became pregnant with my first son that a friend taught me how to use a sewing machine to make textile art for the nursery. Suddenly I was hooked on freestyle machine embroidery.
We spent nine years in London where my husband served as Vicar of a church in South West London. During that time I started making art pieces for friends as presents for birthdays or when people were going through hard times. It became a practical way of using my hands in prayer for them. As I sewed I was praying in God's hope and comfort - trusting that I was bringing God's word to life in their situation.
My hope is that the cards and prints that I create will give people a fresh perspective on God's Word and how He meets us in the situations we are in, through the everyday objects and scenarios of life.
