Pam's commission

I was asked to do an embroidery of a special place in Scotland, I photographed the stages of making it.
I selected a lovely thick cotton and painted on a wash of silk paints, ironed to fix.

chose fabircs to applique on in the shapes of the landscape.

Free motion stitches the fabrics down, to secure and add detail.

Added trees in the forground free motion.

Hand stitched a rainbow in the sky and wrote the poem requested then stretched onto a frame.
She loved it and is commissioning something similar soon.
