Hand Stitchery on paper

Inspired by the fabulous contemporary whitework of textile artist Karen Ruane, I have been experimenting with hand embroidery on paper using various weights of undyed yarns. The bottom photos is a seed head worked on undyed cotton openweave in medium cotton perle.

Stitch and Creative Crafts Show

Manchester Embroiderers Guild spent a lovely three days at the Stitch and Craft Show at Event City in Manchester. I helped out on our stand and we had lots of interest in our Rainbow Squares Embroideries, shown here,  and our One Stitch exhibition. Members had created some beautiful pieces using just one type of stitch and people were asked to vote for their favourite. Winner to be announced soon!
