Welcome to my Folksy shop in which you will find a variety of hand-stitched accessories for you and your home, many of which make lovely (and easy-to-post) gifts. I stitch in a variety of styles, combining traditional embroidery with other textile techniques such as felting, weaving, hand dyeing and silk painting. Vintage linens and fabrics re-stitched into unique gifts and accessories may be found at my second Folksy shop 'LynwoodcraftsRecycled' where you will also find vintage sewing supplies including vintage lace.
Brilliant red poppies, together with daises and distant cornflowers and buttercups, are scattered through the ripening corn in this hand-stitched art work.
Sky blue wool fibers have been felted to a background of kunin felt (produced from recycled plastic bottles) using an embellisher machine. A wide variety of yarn snippets, carefully collected from other yarn projects, have been added to represent the poppy field with its reipening corn. Stitching in fine cotton has been added to the sky and meadows to 'stabilise' the felting. The distant poppies, cornflowers, buttercups and daisies have been stitched in fine embroidery thread. Poppies in the foreground have been stitched in in thicker threads and those nearest have been embroidered in silk ribbon.
The back of the piece is neatened by a second piece of felt in the top of which is stitched a felt sleeve. A dowel threaded into the sleeve allows for hanging ( this may be removed if you wish to frame the embroidery)
Height: 16.5 cm approx.
Please note this wall hanging may not be washed.
This item ships anywhere in Europe for the rate quoted for France. I am afraid that there are too many countries to list them all separately. Please message me before purchase for other European destinations and I will be happy to amend the listing.
Photographs of fields of poppies in nearby Shropshire were my inspiration for this piece.
