Work in progress

This is the second in a series of works which find me “bashing” out some developing ideas and themes. The variations in textures are created by loosening off the bobbin case and using a wider range of threads. Those to thick for the top get run through the bobbin and stitched from the reverse.

Happy stitching …

Snowy days spent stitching …

DSCF1836        On the Bernina today is quite a large embroidery (110cms by 35cms)  which I started stitching in late December. As it is going to hang rather than be framed the finishing off will take some time too. It`s a busy picture with 25 figures, three angels and five rats …Sample       Snowy days spent stitching …

Boats, dogs, a lion and a fountain …

Boats, dogs, a lion and a fountain … what a tale this embroidery has to tell. At 42x64cms, this is quite a large piece of work for me. After quite a while considering and planning, it all just fell into place as I stitched.

I was working to a deadline, which helps too!

Stitching days …

Old Blighty!

Old Blighty kitsch! No never! I`m just getting ready for a right Royal street party … It maybe February but Jubilee celebrations need to be started early!

I even treated myself to a new set of threads for this Blighty tale … I do hope my neighbour won`t mind though, as it`s the 2nd time I have used his front door and phone box in a piece of work, remember Buster?

Stitch and be happy …
