The inspiration for Winter Moon came from SEATA (our Embroidery Group) in December. We had a competition which was to produce a piece of work from a Christmas card. The lady who won had produced a beautiful piece of embroidery based on a moonscape so this is my take on that.
I used scraps of white fabric and hand stitching with beads and French knots. In the foreground I added fly stitch foliage. I also added a repurposed frame.
Had a wonderful weekend at the Scunthorpe Embroiderer’s Guild – Saturday was stitch club and then a very interesting talk by Alice Fox about her “Findings” – how she uses the natural world around her as inspiration. On the Sunday – the workshop was “Paper and Stitch” – and I thoroughly enjoyed stitching into lots of different paper – see photo below – not finished yet but work in progress!!
