Queen Liz is finally stitched up!!

She really should have gone to specsavers!

After hours of hand embroidery! I have finally stitched up Queen Elizabeth II ready for her Jubilee celebrations this coming weekend! She has a screen printed dress and a beautiful embellished crown, just what ever girl needs.  As a British designer you can't really not do a little bit of something for this national celebration. Top trends at the moment is to have the British flag in EVERYTHING! and to be honest its driving me nuts and making everything look, well a bit tacky. I know this is all about Britain, but like the keep calm slogan its getting a bit over done. RANT OVER!
So I have decided to keep my drawing simple inspired by the 1950's British stamp. My embroidery is ready to be put into design development for products. I am excited to what I can develop from my embroidery piece.

'Queen Liz II' -such a hard life staring into space!

Personally, I love the contemporary style of illustration created from the random stitch!!!

'zombie nation' -hmmm! Interesting!

No rest for the wicked! Thanks for taking the time to read my blog. Design development coming soon!
Cucumber sandwiches to the ready :) Hurahhh! x
