Year Sampler

Just realised I never posted my finished ‘year-long’ project for last year. Each square represents a week, and I used a combination of techniques. Goldwork, Hardanger, blackwork, stumpwork, needlelace, drawn thread work, beadwork, embellished photography, Bargello, Assisi work, cross-stitch…. etc etc. Mostly my designs, with a couple of motifs from cross-stitch books.


Week 33: 14th August – 21st August 2013

21 Aug


Latest commission – a 10″ x 8″ embellished photograph. Not my usual style – a bit too pretty pretty. But it’s what they ordered! Photo transfer on to canvas, embellished with embroidery silks, couching, goldwork techniques.


NB : you may notice there is no week 32 – unfortunately I’ve been ill, so life has been on hold!

Week 13: 27th March – 2nd April 2013

governors house edinburgh

Latest commission – an embellished photograph (transferred onto canvas) of the Governor’s House, Calton Hill, Edinburgh.

Week 7: 12th Feb to 19th Feb 2013

20 Feb


This weeks production: embellished photograph. Mount is made from the ladies wedding dress – it had been in the attic for 40 years and she wanted something making from it that she could see  every day. 1970’s polyester lace is extremely slippy to work with, especially when backed with nylon / polyester! May need to tweak the mount some more.

Week 2 b: 8th Jan to 14th Jan

12 Jan

autumn ride commission

Latest commission – photo transfer onto canvas then embellished with organza, french knots, satin stitch, and other goldwork techniques.
