Embroidery has opened a world of colour, texture and imagination for me. The work named “Variegated” is a flat surfaced technique called thread painting. Construction of the boxes is from scratch, including covering, lining and decorating. This is a way to show texture, colour and technique. The technique of the white Iris on one of the boxes is called Stumpwork. All my work is done by hand. The embroidery is stitched using a single strand of thread which may be of cotton, rayon, silk or metal. I have learned to be patient doing this craft but, more importantly, it is enjoyable and very satisfying when a project is completed.
