'lil sonny sky
the big bad wolf
I'm the lucky Mum of Lil, Sonny & Sky, happy wife to Chris, hopefully good fiend to many and very bad domestic goddess.
I'm addicted to drawing and creating. I love experimenting with my drawings and taking on new creative challenges, I believe that's the only way to keep my work fresh, improve and learn.
About my square...
I initially took my inspiration from the word and colour Red literally.
I love children's books and I'm surrounded by them in my studio, which inspired me to draw
little Red riding hood and Mr wolf.
I wanted to create a bold easily recognizable image and make Red the dominating character - too savvy to be afraid of any wolf and devoted granddaughter to Grandma - who rocks.
My square is made from felt, fabric remnants, buttons, embroidery thread, cotton, ricrac, braid, a zip and a button badge. All the above was pieced together, then I stitched into place fuelled by tea and Jaffa cakes.
You can see my inspiration here , at my blog 'Lil Sonny Sky which is my daily mental floss.
If you want to see more of my fabric art you can here at my flickr page , and you can visit my Etsy shop here.
Ok thats me on a postage stamp!
The connecting power of the internet always always amazes me!
It's been wonderful being a part of the quilt project and it's online community, also to have my work alongside such talented artists makes me very proud - thank you Kirsty for organizing it! Lisax
