This piece was inspired by Angie Lewin’s work and a photo of some teasels I took when I was out walking on the estuary footpath and I started it at a lovely workshop with Stevie Walker. I was very pleased with it originally and then things started going wrong and I left it for months, but as I had already filled a form to say it was going into the North Wales Embroiderers’ Guild Biannual exhibition it had to be finished. The colours here are not perfect, but I wanted some idea of how it would look framed and it is being framed for me by Monday. Cutting it fine maybe, but that’s how I operate I’m afraid.
Here is the programme for the exhibition and those who have visited one before will know that it will be a feast for the eyes, so if you live within travelling distance please do come and see us. I promise you a great welcome and if you are there on Friday afternoon I shall be on the demonstration table between 3 and 5pm, so please ome and say hello.
