Sherbert Flowers - Inspired by Lace
Lace from Gawthorpe Hall collection
This is the piece of embroidery I have done for the Inspired by Lace project at Gawthorpe Hall in Lancashire. Below it is the fragment of lace which inspired the piece. I took the negative shapes between the lace, enlarged them and cut the shapes out of hand dyed silks and cottons and appliquéd them in an interlocking cluster to cream silk dupion. Each flower is outlined with split stitch and a star stitch sewn at the centre.
