A beautifully layered textile collage slowly stitched depicting the joy of daydreaming…
My design began with a beautiful piece of 1940’s embroidered table linen that has the most delightful silk daisies on.
To this, I have hand painted a subtle layer of a vintage hue with my own eco-dyed palette to the cloth adding some gentle depth to the overall design and yet allow the serendipity of my design to remain true to its’ origin .
A piece of 1980’s vintage rose cotton adds a little extra whisper of softness to the vintage threads used. Slow surface stitching completes my design.

The story behind….
We all daydream at some point during our day…
It’s an important part of any creativity and so you may have guessed by now that I daydream for many moons at a time!
This design evolved simply by staring at the embroidered daisies and letting the threads take over in a gentle organic way.
It took me a few hours of gentle slow stitching to complete which I really hope you will enjoy…
