I have been embroidering since I was fifteen, so I have
quite an accumulation of work by now. The Jacobean Fire Screen
and the Kiwi Panel are examples of some of my more recent
work. I am now planning a pair of panels inspired by the book
"Nefertiti Lived Here" by Mary Chubb, which chronicles her
adventures as secretary to the Egypt Exploration Society's
expeditions under JDS Pendlebury in the early 1930s. Heaven
knows when I'll start work on those!
I have started to do hand embroidery to commission. As an
inveterate stitcher, this has the definite advantage that when the
piece is completed I have no need either to store it or to
I am now working on two privately commissioned embroideries:
Another commission is in the planning stage: a tablecloth,
inspired by the "Amelia Peabody Emerson" adventures written
by Elizabeth Peters.
- a piano shawl for a private client, and
- a panel based on a photograph of the "Camberwell", my
great-grandfather's last ship before he retired in 1938,
as Commodore of the South Metropolitan Coal and Gas
My first completed private commission was the Teddy Bears
I also lead a small embroidery group at church. We haven't
yet moved on to vestments, but the Liturgical Embroidery page
will show you what we have been doing.
We are now working on a companion cover for the book of the Liturgy. The design is based on the Pentecostal flame, and the base fabric is again the woollen fabric used for the book of the Gospels.
