Description

A hand embroidered picture showing a landscape of fields and hedges with the sea in the distance and some swallows swooping overhead. There’s some yellow daffodils and a Celtic Knot Border.

In the landscape is a little lane winding towards the coast past a farmhouse on the hill and some sheep in the fields. The fields are different shades of green and the hedges and trees darker green. There’s a stony outcrop on the hilltop, some fluffy clouds and a twinkle on the sea.

The Celtic border has three knots and takes ages to stitch despite being only one colour, which I’ve outlined in navy to emphasise the ‘over and under’ pattern so essential to Celtic knot work.

The piece of stitching is 5x5cms and the frame is 16x16 cms. The black wooden frame has a grainy texture which sets the work off nicely. I photographed it in natural light without the glass for clarity, then with the protective glass returned and a string on the reverse, it’s ready for hanging.

A year-round reminder of cheerful Spring daffodils and Summer swallows, perhaps a nostalgic view of rural countryside for a city dweller.

Inspiration

I love our countryside here in Pembrokeshire and we’re never far from the sea. I love that moment of rounding a bend in the road and catching a glimpse of the sea glittering and twinkling. The pattern of the fields and hedgerows as the seasons progress is very picturesque and that’s what I’m trying to capture here. The feeling of joy at seeing the swallows - could be any rural area really.

The cheerful Spring daffodils and the Celtic border - I just thought the combination would go well together, some of my favourite things!
