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 blackbird on a branch of blossom.
This textile piece was stitched by hand with embroidery thread onto a pale blue soft cotton background. The branches are a mid grey satin ribbon, the body of the Blackbird is jet-black felt and the bill and eyering are stitched with single strands of thread. The glossy plumage is set off by the pretty white blossom flowers.
This Blackbird is clearly an adult male, I always giggle at the fact that a female Blackbird is actually a chocolatey brown!
The piece of stitching is just over 4x4cms and the frame is 14.5x14.5cms. I photographed it without the glass, in natural light. The finished picture has a neat black wooden frame, has the glass in place and is ready to hang.
An ideal gift for a gardener or a birdwatcher.
Our native Blackbirds are so familiar and intelligent - lots of people have stories about them. And that beautiful song!
As they are present year-round, there's lots of opportunities to catch a glimpse. New combinations of foliage contrasting with those lovely black feathers are a constant source of ideas for pictures, or blossom, as here. Always with a twinkle in the eye...
