Below is a selection of previously commissioned cards “Left blank for your own message”.
The Arabian design has been stitched on a variety of materials using stranded cotton, metallic threads and sometimes with a painted background.
The purple sunburst has a linen background. The design is worked in stem stitch with a roundel of trellis couching, using three shades of stranded cotton.
The terracotta sunburst is worked on polyester cotton
with the design in buttonhole stitch, and a central ring of stem stitch.
This design has also been adapted and painted or stitched in different ways.
All of these have been stitched in stranded cottons on either a cotton calico or polyester-cotton background.
My fantasy tree designs are my own interpretations of 'Jacobean' style with a touch of Tolkein.
These and other designs can be embroidered as mounted and/or framed pictures, or onto clothing, bags or household linens.
