This post is specially for those of you who love threadpainting.
First up I’m going to share two birds exquisitely embroidered by Sharon Burrell.
Here’s an awesome Eastern Bluebird from a needle painting workshop with Tanja Berlin that Sharon took at the 2013 Koala Conventions (this is an event held in Brisbane & showcasing a range of embroidery workshops – you can find the 2015 Program here).
Doesn’t Sharon just rock this design?
The next piece is called Summer Jewel and is technically a crewel kit from Elsa Williams but it’s all done in long and short stitch so I’ve included it here.
Thank you so much Sharon for sharing your beautiful work & Stewart (Bath) for the great photos.
