I'm really enjoying working on small flat artworks for our Creative Christmas Gifts show. 

Seven-Heads-stitched-panel 

'Seven Heads' stitched panel.

I have wanted to incorporate maps into my work for a while now (ever since having a big clear out of my book shelves and being reluctant to put out-of-date maps into the recycling sack).

Horse-island 

'Horse Island' stitched panel

I was keen to continue with my recent 'blooms and seedheads' theme and have had fun searching for place names that inspire a design. 

Bull's-heads 

'The Bull' stitched panel

All these pieces are stitched into a leisure map of Southern Ireland. 

Three-Castle-Head 

'Three Castle Head' stitched panel

To keep the prices down I will be selling these mounted but unframed, so they will make unique and affordable Christmas presents.  I'm rather pleased with them; what do you think?

Flat-head 

'Flat Head' stitched panel.

Of course, lampshade makers, can't work in two-dimensions for long before wanting to go 3D, so that's what I am doing today.  Pop back on Monday to see what I've done with a map of France.

Have a great weekend.
