I take a lot of photographs of all sorts of things, including my makes, my students’ makes, crafty moments and details from everyday life, especially floral portraits, light and shadow, glorious colours and found patterns.  To see more of my own and my students’ work, please visit my Pinterest page.

Here’s something you don’t see very often, recently spotted in Oxford #rabbit #rabbitsofinstagram #rabitworldwide #colourpop #red #schleich #ontheroad #oxford #christinegreencrafts #craftingatthecottage #makesmesmile #unexpected

Needlepoint finished thanks to the stormy weather and a desire to stay on the sofa with the large feline and copious amounts of tea. Now my least favourite bit, stretching it back into shape, will leave it to dry overnight #needlepoint #workinprogress #lovestitching #lovecraft #craft #sewing #thingstodoonastormyday #stretching #reshaping #christinegreencrafts #craftingatthecottage

Work in progress, so therapeutic and perfect activity for this dull grey day #workinprogress #needlepoint #lovestitching #sew #sewing #stitchersofinstagram #colour #therapeutic #craft #sewingproject #sewingisgoodforyou #christinegreencrafts #craftingatthecottage #mydesign

With Valentines Day just around the corner, I thought I’d share some of my hearty makes. I found this lovely Mexican frame at a carboot sale, and hand stitched the tiny felt and velvet heart 💝 #valentines #handmade #mexican #makeyourown #foryourlovedone #craft #craftyourown #silverheart #christinegreencrafts #craftingatthecottage #love #heart #loveheart

Valentines Day is not that far away, here’s a suitably romantic thought from William Morris. It started out as a doodle, was developed into a papercut and then printed on to a beautiful hammer finished card. Available as a card or giclee print.

It’s Wednesday so it’s ‘Throw Down’ tonight which I love. Many years ago I took pottery O and A levels and this is a slab pot I made, decorated with resists, slip and glaze based on the hills around Rochdale. I can still remember the thrill of getting it out of the kiln. #pottery #slabpottery #vase #imadethis #potterylove #resist #landscapedesign #stillinonepiece #craftingatthecottage #christinegreencrafts #slabpot

Day 6 of @paperartistcollective #amonthinpaper and the prompt is #howilearnt . Daughter of two creative parents, I learnt a lot from them. They encouraged and inspired me and my sister to draw and make and be creative. I am also inspired by ‘stuff’ and this is one of my most prized possessions. It’s a gorgeous example of Haitian steel drum art and it makes me smile every time I look at it #howilearnt #creativeparents #haitiansteeldrumart #cutout #favouritething #makesmesmile #tree #thingsilove #treasuredpossession #christinegreencrafts #craftingatthecottage

Day 5 of the @paperartistcollective challenge and it’s workspace. I don’t have a designated desk let alone room where I work, I use the kitchen table, it’s stable, has good light and is handy for tea and coffee #papercrafts #paperartist #paperartistcollective #workspace #kitchentable #craftinginthekitchen #craftingatthecottage #christinegreencrafts #amonthinpaper

Day 4, design process #amonthinpaper @paperartistcollective My design process is pretty simple; whether it’s papercutting, graphics, typography or patchwork, it all starts with a small doodle in my ongoing notebook. This then gets developed using layout paper and when I ‘m happy I cut through two layers of paper, a final version of the design on layout is hinged to the paper which is the artwork #designprocess #papercrafts #paperartistcollective #handdrawn #handdrawntype #bloomwhereyouareplanted #fineliner #workinprocess #christinegreencrafts #craftingatthecottage #lettering #playingwithletters
