This embroidery was inspired by a walk on the moors in the Peak District.

 

The background fabric is Habutai Silk. I painted the scene with fabric paints and then it was Free Machine Embroidered on a sewing machine. The various textures were achieved by altering the tension of the machine.

 

 

The embroidery was then further stitched by hand to add more texture and depth.
