Beading, Embroidery  |  December 22nd 2011  |  0 Comment


Blossom Tree

Side angle showing the texture of hand stitching, beading and couching. The large pink beads are made with polymer clay. I used a commercially printed fabric for the background which is rare for me to do.


Blossoms on Pink


Tree, wee one

A new approach to the tree. This one has some handmade polymer beads (green ones) mixed in with the glass seed beads.
The trunk is made from silk weaving threads that are couched. There are French knots and machine stitching too.


Moonlight Blossoms 5

Full moon and blossoms. This year I’m trying a twilight blue background. Last year the backgrounds were charcoal.

Blossom Tree


French knots, beads, couching. Continuing with the blossom theme.



Golden Blossoms, framed

A wee happy tree in time for the early spring we’re having here in Vancouver.



Blossoms and Nest 7

Spring nest of yarn, scrap threads, polymer clay eggs, embroidery, beads.
Couching of hand-spun yarn for trunk and branches.


Blue and White Grape Hyacinths




Meadowsweet, detail

A detail shot of Meadowsweet. This corner shows the loopy French knots that I make, with a sprinkling of beads. The background is a crazypatch like previously show, but I hand painted it after the embroidery was complete. The effect glows around the flowers. Jacquard textile paints were used, applied with a stencil brush.


Yellow Yarrow





I tried something new with the Meadowsweet. I made my usual background out of a hundred or so scrap pieces, but then I added colour with Jacquard Textile paints. I painted after most of the stitching was complete. You can see the glowing effect around the blossoms. I darkened the area just outside of the stitched blossoms.

French knots (in my loopy and loose way), appliqué, free-motion, couching.

The plant does have red stems, which are fun and rather vein-like.
