My fascination with ammonites began when I visited our local museum 3 years ago. I had been to my local Embroiderers Guild meeting and we had been asked to visit the museum and photograph an artefact which would inspire us to create a piece of work for display in the museum later that year.


I thoroughly enjoyed designing and stitching my ammonite. Some close ups of my work below.

I have recently been working in my sketchbook designing another stitching project. This time incorporating the local steelworks which were the reason the ammonites were found – digging up iron ore in the area.
