Every now and then I need to step back from a project I am working on. I take a break, distract myself with another activity and go back to it with fresh eyes.
Yesterday’s break from a client’s piece came this little treasure. Having some down time watching Outlander season 1, for I think the hundredth time, I created this piece.
Inspired by the thistle I found a gorgeous image online of Glencoe and a valley covered in thistles that lead down to a charming loch. So picturesque was this image I knew it must be brought to life in this mini embroidery hoop. A tiny hoop, only 5cm high, and 2 1/2hrs later I felt so proud putting the landscape of the Scottish highlands into its frame.
I have had such an influx of support of this piece that you can expect to see more of these created in the near future and for sale in my online shop.
Have a beautiful day,
