Mandy Pattullo @ Hope & Elvis

I'm really behind with posting to my blog, but I will try hard this week to catch up!!

Last week, my best bloggy pal Lyn (from Everyday Life)  and I were booked in for the day at the Hope & Elvis studio's for a day with the wonderful Many Pattullo.

 We were entranced.  Mandy's work is exquisite and she is a very inspirational lady.
 She had brought plenty of her samples to give us idea's a plenty.
 What I loved about it was that it was all hand sewing and only used the teeny tiniest of scraps of fabrics - the pieces are very economical to produce and her techniques were easy to follow.
 She also brought a lot of her mixed media work to show us too.

 Louise @ Hope & Elvis provided us with a lovely lunch.

 This is my "work in progress"  I have almost finished it so I will show you the finished article as soon as I have framed it.
We had a great day as usual, and it has fired my creative mojo back up again - which can only be a good thing!

That looks like a lot of fun. The samples look great and yours looks good too. I need some photography mojo.

Mandy's work is gorgeous - the deer and fox especially are beautiful. Lunch looks pretty good too! And look, you're making your own lovely stag - do show us when he's done! xxx

Wow! That looks a brilliant class. I am ashamed to say Mandy is new to me, but I love her style. I am blown away by the stag and fox too. You both look as though you had a great time and and your pieces are both super. I do hope we get to see the finished articles.
