Framed embroidery

I have been looking at working on different framing for a while. Although I really like the round shape of the embroidery hoops, sometimes I can’t help feeling limited by it.  Some ideas work really better in a square or a rectangle shaped frame…

So I have already shared with you my first creation (the little house in the fields, see previous post) and here is my second one : “A windy day” and it is a diptych.  My first artistic love is definitely photography and I really enjoy the possibility to integrate a few ideas I love to work with as a photographer in my embroideries.

The girl has been machine embroidered (free motion drawing) and the piece of fabric is a dark blue Fairford Liberty fabric.

Free motion embroidery : the house in the fields

I so wish I could live in a little house like this! 

Lost in the fields, tomatoes slowly growing in the sun, a little tree to read a book in the shade. Of course, there is ivy on the walls and clothes drying on the line, dancing gently with the wind.
