It looks amazing Tracy. I really wish I could make it to London to see all the pieces together in the one space.Anna
Thanks Anna - I will not be able to make the preview as I am teaching during that time, but I will see the exhibition at some point during the summer, and will look forward to seeing your two birds too - which look stunning! Hope all is well with you.
Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous. sharon T
It's stunning! And even the back is lovely too!
Thanks for all your lovely comments - much appreciated!
It'a exquisite! As I stare at it on my pc screen it actually looks 3 dimensional. The back is a testament to your skills as well! I'm hoping to see the exhibit in the first part of September. Would love to be there for the opening though.
Hi Tracywell it is beautiful, they are both fantastic, Nicola's is almost Translucent I don't know if that's the right word (light airy) and your's has a depth of colour which is rich .. I love the design its stunning, but I admit I am attracted to the richer in colour .... superb. x
Thanks Mel. Did you know, or anyone reading this, that Nicola's is a drawing of an embroidery rather than an embroidery itself. This is what her exhibition will be based on and inspired by William Morris . . .
Hi Tracy.. Gasps in amazement no I did not! how beautiful and talented she is, I though it was stitched ... That does explain why it seems lighter in texture to yours. Sill both stunning.
Hi Mel - yes that is her current style - to draw in the style of stitch - the new May Morris - see her website for more - http://www.nicolajarvisstudio.com - thanks for enjoying it all.
Hi Tracy, You have stitched this piece of work beautifully and the design is fablulous too. Congratulations.Best WishesDebbie
Congratulations on finishing, it is beautiful!I am hoping to get to the exhibition. I have watched a few of Nicola's designs come to life on various blogs and I really would like to see them in real life.
Thanks for all your kind comments - always much appreciated, and thanks for following me. xXx
How very beautiful, both the design and the interpretation. What clever girls, and how lucky we are to have you teaching us. Looking forward to seeing the exhibition, and pleased for once something is in London. Paulette
Thanks Paulette - much appreciate! Will visit the exhibition too - and I need to return your union jack which I have safe here in Durham. Will be in touch, and enjoy the exhibition.
