Maud Lewis (part 2)…

So as I previously wrote about, I’m really fond of Maud Lewis’ folk art work and I copied one of her designs on a cushion cover. (Maud Lewis (part 1)

Once it was finished I decided to add a little embroidery.
The fabric paint I used feels a bit odd so I added some texture with the sewing which has made the whole thing feel a lot better.
As you can see I pretty much used the same colours as the paint so the look of the design is not really changed.

I kept things simple and just used my favourite embroidery stitch – chain stitch. It is a nice stitch, quite easy to keep even and it is quick to do once you’ve got the knack.

Here’s some close ups of my stitching…

So I think it’s complete…


Thanks for reading, back next week,
Love Rosie
