Back to front
Back of the siskin panel for a cushion
Sometimes I turn a piece of work over and sigh. There is often something far more intriguing, fresh and frankly interesting about the unintentional back of a bit of embroidery. The back holds the design, but without the occasionally forced colour choices of the front or the cleanliness of the line.I also revel in the random spray of stray threads and I’m often tempted to leave them be. I’m gradually learning not to dismiss embroidery backs…there’s something there for me to learn about – allowing perhaps.
And now for the front.
and here's the whole bang shoot: Throw, blind and cushion for the Kingairloch Estate.
