Stitchworks by Sue

The piece above is made using felting techniques, with the inclusion of shot organza, and then embroidered by hand to add definition and texture. It is currently in hanging form, but I am considering mounting and framing it.

An embroidery showing my influence by gothic architecture, worked in reverse applique and machine embroidery, and mounted on canvas for hanging.

The design inspiration for this stumpwork embroidery is the Sanctuary Knocker at Durham Cathedral.

Hi Sue
thought i would leave a comment as i too am new to this blogging stuff! I love your felted piece, i think to frame it might loose its tactile appearence? A hanging sounds good though. I also took a look at your other blog page and loved your barcelona photos, again, i too went there some years ago and love the Sagrada F. We went right up to the top like you but i found it somewhat scary. There is a lot of inspiration to be got from all the wonderful architecture in Barcelona - enough to keep us going in textiles for ages.
bye for now
