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.
A single Red Rose - hand stitched brooch with velvet edge.
This little piece of detailed embroidery was sewn by hand with individual strands of threads in various reds, crimson and greens onto a background of soft stone-coloured cotton. It was then carefully edged with a soft, red velvet ribbon which frames it and gives the piece structure.
I've tried to show the velvety nature of the deep coloured, curling petals and the toothed edges of the leaves. I'm interested how the colours seem to alter through the day as the light changes, sometimes it's really bright and vivid, sometimes soft and deep.
I photographed it in natural light to show the colours as accurately as possible, but bear in mind that screens vary. It measures just over 3 x 4.5 cms and has a brooch pin back with a safety catch for security. I'll dispatch it in a little white organza bag.
An ideal keepsake for someone special.
There's a little red rose bush at the back of the flower bed that usually gets totally obscured by more vigorous neighbours, so much so that we don't often get to see the flowers in bloom. This year however, we've had a bit of a sort-out and consequently can admire our lovely rose as originally intended...
This is my attempt at re-creating the beautiful flowers to enjoy year-round.
