This is my last post of 2013 and I thought I would end with a ‘riot’ of stitch; I have been working on this for some months, working alongside someone who hasn't done much stitch before, and she has her own piece well on its way.

 Lazy daisy inspired by Jan Beaney and Jean Littlejohn.

Best wishes for Christmas and the New Year.

Gelli plate and stitch.

The idea here is finished I think, but not yet the stitching.

Lino print with gelli plate print background using acrylic paint; a piece of an old book ‘Tess of the D’Urbervilles’ pasted on top.

Photographed, taken into an ipad app and a selection made of the text, which I have then pasted and scaled.

 Next printed out onto fabric using a prepared cotton fabric.
Quilted onto wadding.

Starting to stitch using Bullion Knot and wool thread.
