And why did I remember this old saying, along with the butcher’s children get no meat etc.? I shall share a little from my own home prayer space which has always somewhat behind in terms of textile adornment… because I’m forever making things for elsewhere! I finally got it together and here we go…Read more

Goldwork Tabernacle Veil
I finished this a while ago but it was only installed fairly recently as there were a few other items to go with it. The embroidery took a while to do..Read more
This and That
A few years ago Father O asked me if I took photographs of everything I made. He was sort of telling me off because he knew perfectly well that I sometimes forget! He knew because I had just given him some items which I had not taken pictures of. Oops.

Double Matted Manoppello Image
Another interruption, sigh… this is an interesting one though and definitely a textile art project! So here’s a peek at the presentation work for an approved reproduction of the Image of the Holy Face of the Veil of Manoppello.Read more
A Silk Purse from a Sow’s Ear…?!
Happy Easter! Well, what a Holy Week I had… Father outdid himself indeed, what with fix this (pole removed from canopy – why?), revive that (ombrellino!), could you make this (new altar cloth!) and oh, by the way… I have this tapestry and it would make a splendid frontal!

A Saint James Antependium
I happen to attend one of the many churches in our world named after St. James the Greater or ‘Big James’ as he might otherwise have been called… 😉
When Father first moved to the parish he said something about a frontal… I valiantly avoided him and such silly notions for ever so long!
Actually I was quite unwell and wasn’t in a place to take on a big project so it just didn’t happen until quite recently…
Rose Burse & Veil Set
Here’s the end result, so far, of those embroideries.
I say so far as if you want to wait a while I will keep going and make a low Mass set!
I hesitate, as I don’t know what style of chasuble you’d like! Get in touch if you think you’re interested; I’d love to keep going but it’s a bit much for me to bite off if I don’t have a home for the set to go to…
