Shop Announcement:

Welcome to Sylvie's Sewing Room.

My textile work is all hand stitched using a free-style combination of stitches that I call "drawing with threads".

If you have any particular questions or would like something designed and created specially for you, please get in touch - commissions welcome!

I photograph everything in natural light, which is sometimes a bit ... gloomy here in West Wales. So bear that in mind, and of course colours may vary from screen to screen as you know.

Postage is first class Royal Mail, packaging is recycled and recyclable where appropriate.

Please enjoy looking... and stay safe everyone.

Goldfinch - embroidered by hand textile picture.

Distinctive and colourful, l always enjoy seeing a goldfinch.

This picture of a goldfinch on a branch of blossom, is worked with strands of thread on scraps of fabric. It's a method I call "drawing with threads" where the image is built up with stitches of varying lengths and different colours, adding depth and detail. It is very time consuming tho!

The piece is framed behind glass for display and protection, ready to hang. The stitched image is about 5 x 6cms and the whole item is approx 14 x 15cms.

It was photographed in natural light without the glass to show it accurately, however, screens and monitors do vary.

A lovely gift idea for a bird watcher or gardener.


I've hardly ever seen a goldfinch in our garden, so you can imagine how exciting it is when one calls in for a visit!

I watch them mainly in some old farm buildings among some woodlands, where they flit and flash among the branches, and rest briefly on the stones. Their plumage has a gorgeous contrast of colours - scarlet, glossy black, pure white and of course that golden yellow. Unmistakeable...
