Roll up, roll up! There are two spaces left on tomorrow’s Driftwood Delights workshop, run by me at The Fibre Lounge in Kings Langley, Hertfordshire. If you saw it before but weren’t sure, then this is your chance to seize the day and sign up 😊! It’s on between 2&4pm, all materials are provided and you’ll receive an endless supply of hot beverages! It’s a small group and I’m sure we’ll all have a fab time drilling, stitching and chatting with each other 😬. You can find out more information and book your space by visiting the “Bookings-Workshops” section of @thefibrelounge website. If you have any questions please do ask Louisa or myself, we’re always happy to help. Thanks! ❤️....... #stitchingthroughwood #embroideryworkshop #stitchworkshop #stitchingworkshop #workshop #driftwood #driftwoodart #modernembroidery #embroidery #embroideryart #decorativeobjects #artsinherts #brightondriftwood #thefibrelounge #fibrelounge #kingslangley #hertfordshire #embroiderythread #comeondown #driftwoodheart #whatwillyoumake
Check out this jaune et verte (yellow and green) patty pan squash, or at least that’s what I think it is! Grow by my boyfriend’s sister on her allotments. It makes me think of Halloween just looking at it. I love those ornamental gourds you can buy in the supermarkets. However, you can eat this one but I don’t think that I will, I’ll just look at it! 😊💛💚...... #pattypansquash #pattypan #squash #jauneetverte #yellowandgreen #ornamentalgourds #scallopedsquash

Peeping conkers💚! Found by the Wendover arm of the Grand Union Canal this morning. The one on the right is a double-yoker 😍!! I love conkers, they remind me of being a child. The texture of both the shiny and the velvety is also delightful! So new and lovely. Autumn anyone?! 🍁🍂🍃...... #conkers #peepingconkers #readytoopen #autumn #autumnal #besidethetowpath #grandunioncanal #morningwalk #wendoverarm #brownandgreen #greenandbrown #nature #ilovenature
Today is World Suicide Prevention Day. In the UK and ROI an average of eighteen people a day die by suicide, and across the world more than 800,000 people take their lives each year. Those are startling figures. World Suicide Prevention Day is an annual awareness raising event, and has been so since 2003. The Samaritans advise you to start a conversation today if you think that a friend, colleague or family member may be struggling. “Reaching out to people who are going through a difficult time can be a game changer” 💛🧡❤️💜💙💚....... #itsokaytotalk #worldsuicidepreventionday #worldsuicidepreventionday2018 #thesamaritans #samaritans #driftwoodhearts #stitchingthroughwood #ellarobinsonartist #brightondriftwood #driftwood #hearts #heart #modernembroidery #sharingiscaring #embroiderythread #brightonlanes #brighton
This week these little beachcombed figures have been my props! I have been photographing a selection of stitched decorative objects that I hope to put in a webshop shortly. I feel sorry for the unfortunate people/children who lost these. My favourite is the Playmobil figure, which normally lives in my letterpress tray in the lounge 😬...... #playmobilfigures #playmobil #legofigures #lego #inthenightgarden #beachcombed #beachcomber #2minutebeachclean #flotsamandjetsam #brightonbeach #props #spiderman #figures #figurines
