Exploring Velvet

Hi all - well, we weathered the storm okay here in Somerset with not too much damage at all and when you see some of the pictures in the paper and on the news we realise just how lucky we were.  Our thoughts go out to everyone who was affected by the "St Jude" storm.

 I have finally completed the project I started at my weekend workshop with the lovely and very talented Angie Hughes a few weeks ago.  Now this wasn't the easiest thing in the world to photograph with all the gilding etc but you'll get the picture (oops......sorry about that!!!).

Here is the photo that I posted originally:

and here's how it turned out:


I thoroughly enjoyed this workshop with Angie and hope our paths cross again.


  1. This looks wonderful and it looks as if you enjoyed making it - can't remember when I last did any machine embroidery!

  2. Beautiful work all the colours and I bet it looks even more fabulous in the flesh...


  3. absolutely fantastic Karen, looks beautiful, a lot of work gone into this.

  5. This is extraordinary, Karendipity! I hope it will be framed! It must feel so wonderful to have created something that will be seen and enjoyed for generations! I'm so pleased that you dodged any damage from St. Jude!! Hugs, Dippy

  6. Crikey Karen, that is a bit special! Love all the detail you have put in, I bet whenever someone looks at it there is something else for them to marvel at. Congratulations on such a stunning work of art.
