Hi, I design and create modern hand embroidery designs for embroidery kits, soft furnishing and wall art. I love to design using natural images and reproducing them in a modern simplistic style.
I began my creative journey when a friend taught me crochet many years ago and I developed a considerable stash of 4ply yarn in a multitude of colours. I realised I could use my crochet yarn 'left overs' to create tactile, huggable cushions. The yarns and fabrics I use in my designs create beautiful embroidery pieces that are strong enough and robust enough to be thrown on your sofa and used for a relaxing comforting hug all evening long!
My wall art designs bring a splash of colour to your room and are designed to be used with a picture frame. They are usually in A4 and sometimes A3. The images are designed to look great on their own and also look stunning as a multiple group. All my wall kits work well together as I ensure uniformity of colour over the range of images.
My Embroidery Kits are designed to be straight forward using a few basic stitches. I want everyone to enjoy and get the benefits of some time out, creating some stress free embroidery. My kits are usually completed before the desire to start another work in progress kicks in! My style is embroidery on a larger scale than traditional embroidery, and the instructions easy to follow. My Wall Art Complete Kits include a pre-printed natural linen fabric, all the yarn required, a crewel needle, a wooden hoop yarn tidy, colour chart and easy to follow stitch guide. I also have kits that just include the pre-printed fabric together with the stitch guide, for you to use with your own yarn stash.
I am bursting with ideas to bring to my shop, moving forward I plan to create cushion kits and further soft furnishing ideas as well as bringing further wall art designs.
I would be delighted to take commissions for my cushions that are currently ready made pieces.
