Contemporary Gallery

This blog is now more than eight years old, and has over 400 posts. That's a fair amount of information and pictures, so in an attempt to bring some order to the chaos I have created these gallery pages. They contain pictures of pretty much everything I have made in that time (and, I've realised, a lot of views of my back yard in various shades of yellow!), with hyperlinks to the blogposts.

This page contains all of my contemporary makes, that is to say, post-1990 patterns. It's odd now to look back on some of my very early creations and remember how averse I was to being photographed wearing them. Thanks to the self-timer and an absurd number of outtakes, I have got over that!



New Look

When I came to put this page together I was astonished to discover just how much I use New Look patterns. The fact that I have made some of them up more than once adds to the overall number, but still. Clearly there's just something about their designs which appeals to me.
