This little hoop features Ailsa Craig, an uninhabited island located 10 miles west of the Scottish mainland in the Firth of Clyde. It is a prominent landmark and home to many seabirds including puffins and gannets.
The embroidery is created using wool-mix felt and various cotton and metallic threads. The silver vinyl moon is stitched in place using shisha stitch and the reflections in the water are a mixture of couched threads and backstitch.
All elements of the embroidery have been hand-cut and hand-stitched by me to my own original design. I also hand-painted the 3" (7.5cm) diameter wooden embroidery hoop framing the work.
The back of the hoop is neatly finished with a circle of white felt, signed by me. A hanging loop of white waxed cotton cord is attached to the top screw mechanism. If you prefer, the work can be displayed on a small plate stand (not included).
The textile art will be sent to you in a premium black presentation box (approx dimensions 10.5 x 10.5 x 2.0cm) lined with grey felt to match the background of the piece.
Please note that tiny variations in the hand-stitching occur each time I make the design into a finished piece, so the item you receive may vary slightly from the one shown in the photographs.
Postage to UK addresses is via Royal Mail 1st Class Large Letter service and always obtain proof of postage. I aim to post all orders within 24 hours of receiving payment.

Living on the West Coast of Scotland, I love seeing Ailsa Craig on clear days. Often shrouded by winter cloud or summer haze, it has a real rugged beauty when it finally emerges. There is a theory that the modern name is an anglicisation of the Gaelic 'Aillse Creag' meaning 'Fairy Rock’.
