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.

Today I shall mostly be adding hand stitching to my latest BORO inspired patchwork panel #libertyscrapchallenge #patchwork #boro #handstitched #machinestitched #mytherapy #lovesewing #libertyprint #libertytanalawn #workinprogress #tinypieces #newcoursepossibly #christinegreencrafts #craftingatthecottage #shashikothread

Thoroughly enjoying this Boro influenced patchworking, no piece of fabric too small! And my sturdy 1960’s Singer has been out since lockdown started and used every day #lovestitch #patchwork #workinprogress #vintagesinger #mytherapy #boro #inlockdown #christinegreencrafts #craftingatthecottage

Hubby’s favourite 501’s visibly patched and stitched using darker denim and beautiful white sashiko thread, a delight to use. #visiblemending #sashikostitching #runningstitch #denim #fixingthings #allstitchedup #denimrecycling #denimlove #501 #levis #levis501

Finished! On the @Rayburn website these things are called ‘chef’s pads’, and ours were looking somewhat worn. So I invested in some heat resistant wadding and got on with some more patchwork. Rather pleased with how they turned out #Rayburn #chefspads #patchwork #scrappypatchwork #improv #greens #kitchentextiles #machinestitching #finished #christinegreencrafts #craftingatthecottage #inthekitchen #domesticgoddess

Seeing double! I was delighted to find the matching 1960’s Singer to mine on EBay this week, which I bought for my daughter. (Mine is in the foreground.) Perfect gift and these oldies are great machines, they may only do straight stitch and some zig zag (I never use this option) but what more do you need????? #vintage #vintagesinger #stitchingtogether #familytime #lovesewing #motherdaughter #ebayfind #lockdowngift #christinegreencrafts #craftingatthecottage #madetolast #sturdybydesign

Love these tiny mosaics, seen today in a car park in Kidlington. They are like miniature quilts, I was so excited to see them #kidlington #mosaic #tinyart #patchworkinspiration #inspiring #carparkart #lookdown #ontheground #christinegreencrafts #craftingatthecottage #publicart

Should have been teaching patchwork, my own improvised version, at @denmancollege but sadly not. So I am going to crack on with a little project that has been brewing on the back burner….. something (x2) for the kitchen. The clue is in this blurb!!! #fabric #lovefabric #initialthoughts #green #patchwork #starting #newproject #justkeepstitching #lovesewing #forthekitchen #christinegreencrafts #craftingatthecottage #makesomething #mytherapy

On a roll stitching masks, currently adding contrast binding and stitching in the ditch for neatness. Love working with these beautiful Liberty tana lawns #bigcommunitysew #workinprogress #productionline #libertytanalawn #facemask #lovesewing #vintagesingersewingmachine #stitchintheditch #christinegreencrafts #craftingatthecottage

Been busy with my daughter, @jessiegreeen making masks for friends and family, using double layers of beautiful, practical Liberty tana lawn, with contrasting edges and cotton twill ribbon. #bigcommunitysew #stayathome #covid19 #facemask #sewing #facecovering #sewingforfriends #patrickgrant #sewingbee #tanalawn #christinegreencrafts #craftingatthecottage

I have had this gorgeous piece of braid for a few years, courtesy of @denmancollege and one of their craft sales. And now I have put it to good use and embellished some favourite jeans. #embellishments #homesewn #braid #lovedenim #upstyle #handstitched #embroiderylove #vintagebraid #christinegreencrafts #craftingatthecottage #thingstodoinlockdown

Happy Monday! Another one has come around. Found this whilst sorting through random stuff. Me contemplating what next, not dissimilar to today’s theme….. #archive #littleme #indaysgoneby #youngartistsofinstagram #awhileago #contemplating #getcreative #christinegreencrafts #craftingatthecottage

Sorting through some boxes and came across this birthday paper cut for my son. A very early cut, much bolder and larger than more recent ones #papercut #papercutting #earlywork #typography #handlettering #birthdaycard #mywork #makesomething #personalizedgifts #happybirthday #christinegreencrafts #craftingatthecottage #creativepaperartist

Lucky that I save scraps of fabric, however small, they come in handy for some visible patching on a favourite jumper. Tiny stitches always remind me of the mice in ‘The Taylor of Gloucester’, not sure my stitching is neat enough for the Mayor’s waistcoat but they’ll do the job!#mending #inthesunshine #lovesewing #libertytanalawn #handstitching #fixing #patch #visiblemending #tinystitches #christinegreencrafts #craftingatthecottage

It’s Saturday I think as yesterday was bank holiday Monday on Friday and tomorrow is stay in your pj’s all day Sunday…..so it’s Saturday and I am stitching in the garden with my daughter #stitching #handstitching #inthegarden #saturday #sunnyday #runningstitch #outdoors #sewing #sewingoutside #craftingatthecottage #christinegreencrafts #workinprogress #patchwork #boroinspired

It’s Saturday, I think, so I am thinking ‘more sewing’! Just playing with these lovely blues, browns and a bit of black. It’s something I have been thinking about for a little while….watch this space #workinprogress #startofsomethingnew #fabric #playingaround #colourpalette #playingwithcolour #patchwork #scrapwork #saturdaymorning #makesomething #christinegreencrafts #craftingatthecottage #mycraftylife #getcreative
