Well another wet old day down here in Brighton town. I am finalising my new design which is based on a tile I saw whilst in France, this design will be different as it is only two colours and the choice is left up to the stitcher or they can always use my colours and buy it as a kit rather than a printed canvas.  There are two designs in this series so far (I've got loads of tiles snaps I have taken over the years!!!).  Anyway here's a sneak peak of the final designs.

I am thinking that I will screen print this design onto fabric and then stitch into it as well as getting the stitched tapestrys printed as usual.

Thanks for looking more progress soon.

Time to get my blogging boots back on the straight and narrow!

WOW it's been a while but after what I can only hope was the worst summer of my life I am ready to blog again!

Living in Brighton and having my studio in a little beachut is all well and good in the week of summer that we experienced this year but from here on in it's a bit of a slog.  Good job I have many projects and markets to keep me busy and warm.

I am st Spitalfields Market on 3rd Saturday of every month, I am manily selling my tapestry kits and also my printed cushions.

My new etsy shop Tina Francis Tapestry) is up and running and I am also selling on the JAG Gallery website very soon.  I am looking at other places to sell the kits and also getting my application ready for Bovey Tracey next year - so lots of things going on.

I intend to blog properly from here on in so expect more photos and general stitching shennanigans very soon
