Stitching Into The Woods Part 1

In the first video Linda shows how she was inspired to make a hand stitched embroidery when she was playing with reels of thread! You’ll see how first of all she made a quick colour sketch to decide on composition and proportion, then you’ll discover how she uses masks and fabric pastel to produce vertical shapes. Linda explains her choice of thread colour and her selection and execution of three embroidery stitches which she thinks best interpret the theme. Finally she explains how she places the stitches to suit the small scale of the piece.
