Did I mention that I love my job? I love my job. That’s one of the most annoying things that people can say, ever. Sorry. To make up for my job smugness, here is some inspiration I have been working from recently. You’ll see why I am a smug cow.
I am having a cowboy moment, so what better to compliment it than a Navajo brief? Love the embroidery and hand stitching and beading on the garments, as well as the vibrant colours mixed with siennas and earthy browns. Festival wear sorted. Well, it would be if I wasn’t such a boring old fart not going to any festivals this year. Sob.
I think I’m going to get a feathered headdress and wear it around my house instead. Not weird at all, right?!

I should have done this first, really, what with me being in textiles and stuff. But I’m doing it now. So enjoy. Here are my favs (in no particular order) from Textiles this year, across embroidery, weave and print.
ME! aka Jane Alexandra
I’m so proud of all the ladies from Textile Design, the show was amazing. I have been very lucky to be part of a really amazing class, and I wish everyone the best of luck in the future, but with work like theirs, luck will have very little to do with their success! xxx
