At one point I had seven different threads on the go with this, I’ve managed to reign it back to four now though…
wildsweetling asked: I love your work! So quirky and creative :) I was just wondering if you made a living from your work or do you have a job on the side? :) x x
Thank you :) At the moment while I do earn some money from my work it’s not enough to live off so by day I sell books. In the new year I’m cutting my hours down so I can focus more on illustration, very excited!
Started this guy today. The scientific name for a dormouse’s nose is ‘cute little snoot’. Trust me it’s my job to know these things.
I’ve had to redraw this dormouse several times before managing to hit on a drawing that will (hopefully) work as an embroidery about 3cm across. I got to look at photos of dormice for ages though so it was all in good fun.
shawnanita asked: I am just curious, what kind of camera do you take your photographs with?
I use a Canon 400d, usually with a 50mm lens :)
der-mann-schlaeft asked: Because your works are amazing (and your blog was featured by tumblr):)
Thank you, I thought that was it but I missed seeing it myself so I wasn’t sure :)
hereisaurlitisexciting asked: How do you remove the ring left behind by your hoops once you're done with a piece? I've tried ironing and wetting/stretching mine, but I can never seem to fully remove it.
It is hard to fully remove it, which is part of the reason I’m switching over to roll embroidery frames instead of hoops at the moment. For now, I attack it with hair straighteners and that usually gets most of it out.
rwys asked: wow your embroidery is so dope i was i was that good !!!
Aw, thank you!
