Now sharing some quick notes on embroidery that has caught my eye recently:

The Great Tapestry of Scotland

This is a tapestry in the tradition of the Bayeux Tapestry – an epic account of Scottish history, wonderful design by artist Andrew Crummy and just awesome stitching.

Kate Davies has done a series of blog posts on this tapestry with great photos of the stitching here

Contemporary Australian Textile Artist – Meredith Woolnough

Meredith’s work is technically and aesthetically breathtaking – she combines embroidery, resin and other materials to create multi-layered and sculptural textile works. She’s having an exhibition from 5-31 July in the Pop Up Gallery at the Milk Factory, 33 Station St (rear), Bowral.

You can see examples of her work on her blog here

Bye for now
