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.

Hand embroidered picture of a mallard duck family.

This domestic scene features the parents and ducklings swimming along.

It was hand stitched using strands of embroidery thread, the image built up with stitches of various lengths and colours.

The stitched piece is about 5 x 6cms and the whole item is approx 14 x 15cms. It is framed behind glass with a simple untreated wooden frame for display and protection and is ready to hang.

I photographed the picture in natural light without the glass for clarity, but I'm sure you know that screens and monitors do vary.

A great gift for a nature watcher...


Ducks are quite comical, but their domesticity must be admired!

The colours and patterns of the adult birds are really gorgeous, and the contrasting colours of the male's plumage are particularly noticeable. And the little ducklings are so cute!
