NEC piece and Retro..... here we go!

Finally finished my Fashion, Embroidery and Stitch piece. I would say its taken me 30 hours to complete.

Weybourne Beach in Norfolk!
How was it made..... Watercolour painting on calico, with bondaweb to add texture. Hand stitched with silks and cottons. Seed stitch, french knots (Thousands!), Satin stitch and padded fabrics (Hand painted or dyed). Then stretched onto a wooden frame... Thank you hubby!

Now to get making for events. The pressure is on as my first event is a week on Friday at Milton Keynes.   
 
So I said I was going to try something different and you know I love a bit of colour!!


Carried on the bird theme as I love it so much!



More to come.... Just need to sweet talk my hubby into making a few more frames for some pictures. Must go more to do and little time to do it in!
