Blue Pebble

Another experiment: this time the stone is visible through the embroidered covering - you can reach out and touch the the stone's surface itself. Couched metallic blue thread.

Am planning on spending some time with the sketchbook to get back in touch with my drawing and mark-making - in the meantime it's things like this I'm playing around with to refine my technical stitch capabilities.

  1. Hi there, I've just come across your work from an old copy of Stitch magazine (issue 63) and wondered if you still did the blackwork and Hardanger pieces? I thought they were brilliant. I'd love to see more! They're like the thread version of pen and wash paintings- very illustrative.
