Autumn Colours 

  
It’s been good to get back to some stitching this week. Been busy with family things like sick bugs and birthdays! 

A new small piece I’m working on, it’s inspired by a sketch of the Northumbrian landscape. It’s changing as I work on it though. As I cycled through the parks this morning I got inspired by the beautiful autumn colours so I’m going to add leaves in those golden green shades to the trees on the ridge. 

I’ve layered up the background and now I’m working in the details. The clouds are needle felted and stitched, still love that effect. The fields are appliqué with hand dyed fabrics. I’ll add texture with stitch and paint. I’ve got a few of these rustic box frames to use. I think they compliment the raw edges of torn fabric, so I’m going to leave the edges unfinished. I’ll post another picture when I’m done.

Look out for it at the Station Steamer on November 6th! I’ll have some new badges ready by then as well.

I am a professional textile artist specializing in Appliqué and Free Motion machine stitching. In order to create a unique colour palette, I hand dye my own fabrics and then use these to create the landscapes and coastal scenes recorded in my sketchbook. I often incorporate recycled or vintage fabrics in my work - they add meaning to the story the work is telling. I love being so close to the Northumbrian coast and countryside and I especially like taking time walk and draw these stunning landscapes
