My first love is a bit of hand sewing. Occasionally a project requires a little more stitching – some free motion embroidery. It’s then, my wonderful trusty Bernina is dusted off, plugged in and threaded up.
Free Motion Project
This piece of sewing – work in progress – is a small piece made using raw edge applique onto a vintage French Quilt.
It’s surprising how Stitchery ideas evolve.
Inspiration for this piece came from a photograph of my children taken on a wonderful holiday to France. They’re on the beach in Brittany
collecting stones and searching for shells. Happy times.
So what started as a simple holiday snap, consequently sparked an idea for this and other pieces of textile art.
