Embroidery and Lace Pictures

I used little 6"x 4" canvases for these little pictures, collaged pages from a gardening book and used Liquitex Inks to colour.
I revisited Pintangle [Take a Stitch Tuesday] to remind myself how to to do some of the embroidery stitches I have done in the past. Sharon is showing how to do embroidery stitches again if you wish to join in.
Above - Raised herringbone band, running stitch.

Slipped detached chain stitch, cross stitch.

Fancy hem stitch, running stitch.

Up and down feather stitch, running stitch.
I shall include these on Simply Neutrals Tuesday, do pop along to see more.


  1. Reminds me of your altered calendar book with small stitch samples on lace - many of them pink. That was you, wasn't it?

  2. These are simply gorgeous Linda and so naturally textural!

  3. They are so lovely Linda, beautiful mix of old and new !!

  4. Beautiful lace and embroidery collages Linda! They have such a peaceful feel to them. I especially love the embroidery you did, wonderful! Thank you for joining :)

  5. What a gorgeous background you have used. Very effective juxtaposition of vintage laces with earthy texture.


  6. Oh my your samples (pictures) are so lovely! I'm glad I peeked in (from Wen's SNT) today! Beautiful work~ Karen O
