• Stitch


    These pics were my interpretation of a Flickr macro theme called ‘Stitch’.  They are of a lovely Christmas table runner that I bought a few years back….. On the last one I added a ‘glow’ effect called deep forest which I thought rather suited this embroidered leaf. I used to love doing embroidery myself in my…
