Hand Embroidery

'Here the needle plies its busy task, The pattern grows, the well depicted flower, Wrought patiently into the snowy lawn, Unfold its bosom, bud and leaves and sprigs."

A Winter's Evening - William Cowper

 

Inspired by the nature around our home and the literature of these islands, my designs are hand embroidered onto antique linen.  I make all of the pieces shown here, each one is unique and, in the case of the pictures and cushions, there is often only one or two of each design, making them truly limited editions.
