Embroidery And Threads











Oh dear!



The thread pile has grown again.


I have been very absorbed in my large textile and my thread pile has sort of spread into my stitching!

I have been adding more textural stitching to the foreground by hand.

I still have a lot more stitching to add, as I need to make the texture blend more into the background.
I have placed one of my brooches against the piece for you to see this is so much larger than my normal work.
I hope the scale of stitching is working in this piece, I'm constantly changing threads!
I needed to get back to some smaller stitched brooches and I have made this lace tree.
I thrive on the satisfaction of completing an art work and this is why I usually stitch on a smaller scale.
It's quite exhausting working on this larger landscape, but at the same time I feel I'm really pushing myself.
One of the positive aspects of blogging is, I have even more of an incentive to complete it!

It will be worth it in the end. It looks very dramatic.

It's an amazing piece! It was a good idea to show it alongside the brooch so we can appreciate the scale and just how much time and love you are lavishing on it

Have a lovely weekend M

I love the look of your larger art work but I do know what you mean about liking to get things finished - thus doing smaller items. I am interested to know if you do all this on the machine and if so, how do you accommodate the thicker thread - do you slacken the tension?
Also I wonder if you like the work of Alice Kettle - I went to an exhibition of her work - most impressive.
