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.
A pretty winter sunset landscape with sheep and a winter tree embroidered on a hand painted background.
A piece of white fabric was painted in shades of green and peachy pink to represent green meadows and a lovely sky at sunset. The fabric paints were allowed to blend at the boundaries. An oval shape was cut from the painted fabric and a pretty design of a winter tree and sheep was stitched in cotton threads.
The completed design has been reinforced by plastic cut from a recycled bottle. The design has been framed by button hole stitch, in fine threads, in peach and green - corresponding to the areas of the design. The back of the brooch is neatened by a layer of felt and a brooch pin is securely stitched in place.

I love stitching miniature landscapes. This is the first brooch I have made with this sort of painted background.
