This is a page for my smocking and embroidery work. I taught myself to embroider when I was around 12 years old, sick in bed for weeks on end with bronchitis. Then I sort of forgot about it until I had three little girls and stumbled upon Australian Smocking & Embroidery magazines while in my local Chapters bookstore.
I bought the magazine and made my first ever smocked dress, and was hooked on the immediate gratification it offered. All of my smocking is done for the pleasure of creating something so pretty to be worn by special children in my life. I’ve posted some of the pictures of my versions of the designs in AS&E’s wonderful magazine here. By clicking on them, you can find my photostream at Flickr to see more.
