Inspiration from the Cotton Mills of Lancashire

The Cotton Mills of Lancashire have inspired a great deal of my work, especially my latest stitchery project.
I've combined my love of red thread with a vintage garment and the job titles of those working in the cotton industry to make a piece of wearable art. 
 
 

I love red. This wonderful pincushion from Beyond Measure is made using cloth woven in Lancashire.
 
It's a work in progress - my mind is already busy thinking about the next two pieces of embroidery I want to create! Does is happen to you too?
