Little Leaf Study

Image of Little Leaf Study

I started to learn embroidery when I was 10 years old. It was my mother's way of keeping my out of mischief on the rainy days, when I had a habit of dismantling everything in sight. Tragically, she never did have the chance to teach me all she knew. A debilitating accident took away her deft needlework abilities and I just couldn't bring myself to ask her for lessons again. Since then, I have dabbled with the craft over many years and only recently have I picked up my needle and thread with the intention of 'painting' on fabric once again. I mix traditional methods and newly learned methods with a more personal rebellious modern approach.

My Little Leaf Study was inspired by my curiosity and passion for natural history. A little nod to Victorian botanical illustrations and a wink towards a minimalist appreciation for detail and simplicity.

Twice mercerised deep green cotton floss on dusty petal pink cotton linen. Framed within a 4" wooden hoop, neatened on the reverse with acrylic felt and sent with a generous length of cotton twine.

Every embroidered work I create is a labour of love, I will only ever make one of these.

Ready to post. You will receive it beautifully packaged - of course!
