I have just finished stitching this Flapper Lady for a friend who fell ill & was not able to complete it. It is designed by Trish Burr & was featured in an "Inspirations" magazine. Very finely stitched in the 'silk shading' technique & I love the image! I used a combination of DMC & Anchor cotton floss.

I have just finished embroidering this as a memorial to the beautiful Rose window from our Christchurch Cathedral which was destroyed in the February 2011 earthquake in Christchurch New Zealand.
I printed the colour onto fabric with my printer, from my computer, then over-printed the window on top.
I have embroidered it with Reverse Chain, Split & Ladder stitch with various threads. Trimmed with Swarovski crytals to represent the stained glass.
