My Folksy shop is still open and I hope you find something you love! Please note that although I always aim to send orders as quickly as possibly, I’m currently home schooling and trying to reduce my trips to the Post Office, so it may take a little longer than usual for your parcel to arrive. I will update you via email regarding despatch times. To make things easier for you, I can also gift wrap any presents, I can add a hand-written note and send your order directly to the recipient – just leave me a note when you checkout. Thank you so much.
A contemporary take on the traditional embroidery sampler. I have hand embroidered the black stripe on the fabric with bright colours, in a ‘freestyle’ organic pattern. Using neon thread, and contrasting colours together to create a burst of colour, texture and pattern.
The embroidery is framed in an oval hoop, which can be hung on the wall using the tightening screw, or propped on a shelf to display.
Stitched using DMC cotton embroidery thread, and Rico Neon thread onto thick black and cream cotton canvas, using chain stitch, fern stitch, french knots, whipped running stitch, herringbone stitch, chevron stitch, couching and trellis work.
This piece is completely one of a kind.
The hoop measures 24cm across and 13.5cm down / 9.5” by 5”. The back of the embroidery is covered with a card disc. The embroidery is wrapped carefully in tissue and popped in a sturdy cardboard envelope before posting. 1st class postage is free on orders over £15.
I was inspired by creating different textures and line quality using different embroidery stitches, and displaying them in an unstructured design.
