Stitchery and embroidery make up a huge part of my daily life.I am most interested in drawing for embroidery which is its own challenges, as not everything that can be drawn can be stitched satisfactorily. I have an engineer husband who can draw very nicely and who can be relied upon to help out with re drawing hands and feet...something I struggle with.
My own garden is a huge source of inspiration.I like to commission young designers from time to time for a fresh perspective for my designs.
