My Finished Project....

14th March 2018

Apologies for the photos, a very poor light here today.

What a change in the weather from yesterday, high winds and rain so no walk to the beach today!!

My project for the Architecture course was to embroider a house, I completed it this morning and have really enjoyed the process.....





I used organza for the windows . Stitches used were back stitch, stem stitch and seed stitch on layered fabrics and lace for the hedge.

I used some tea dyed Abaca tissue for the petals of this flower and stitched on a stiffened scrim BUT 

next time must remember to take care with my stitching at the back!!!


My beach findings from yesterday mounted on hessian...

....a very delicate seaweed...


.....wool and feather...


....Limpet and sea weed....





....I have had a great time in Cornwall and have already booked for next year!!

My next blog will feature this weeks work from the group .
