Slow stitching

This week I attended a workshop at the Home Patch with Lisa Maddock of Forage. The class was excellent. We learnt how to draw inspiration from boro, sashiko, and kantha. We used a variety f repurposed and vintage fabric with some of our own stash and mixed them together to create a background, then added an embellishment if naive stitches to create our own piece.

I stayed up till 1am the night of the class and didnt want to go to bed, I just wanted to keep stitching'..

Im really loving this technique all done by absolute favourite....

the following pis are of  some of Lisas work...this first one is stunning..this one is next on my list/...loving the liberty flowers!!!

Lisa calls this one the Botanicals

A few ladies in the class did these pairs...soo cute..

This one the background is made up of upholstery scraps..and the all the fibres are left for texture..was stunning..


  1. I'm with you....beautiful! Lucky you....what a great workshop x

  2. those are just lovely Deb, I can see why you stayed up so late... no small scraps will be safe in your house... I love the soft colours together also

  3. Wow! I so love that style. I wish I'd known about the workshop. (Should probably have read my newsletter better.) I can understand you getting carried away on your piece.
