After dyeing some lace for the jellyfish corset I was reminded of the Harry Clarke inspired corset I made two years ago. The lace on that is also hand-dyed. The corset is hand painted silk.

The chrysalis that inspired the corset/canvas on which I embroidered the two works inspired by Maria Sibylla Merian. The tiny golden details of the chrysalis are also mirrored along the edge of the binding with miyuki beads.

Can't quite believe the new atelier has been going for nearly six months already. I love spending time here and meeting so many different people who all share a passion for sewing.

Day 8 of #threaduary and today seamstresses in Japan thank the bend and broken pins and needles for the work they have done. So here's a little cherry blossom tree made from hand painted silk ribbon French Knots.

Day 7 of #threaduary and special stitches are on the menu. This Sunday I'm teaching a little workshop on miniature embroidery again. The roses are made of different shades of bullion stitches which are just so fun and versatile. But the most joy is brought on by these tiny bees, don't you think?

Day 5 of #threaduary is about storage but a photo of a little cabinet, in which the drawers of the first photo fit, didn't seem too exciting. But! I am adding little red beads in different shades to the jellyfish 🤗🤗🤗 Here's to hoping I have enough!

The day started with a broken knitting needle before a long train journey 😟😶 Managed to knit two rounds with the stump then gave up. Knew I should have packed my embroidery instead.... Day 4 of #threaduary Hoop-La

Day 3 of #threaduary so I am sharing a little tip. Get the best quality materials you can afford if you are spending time and effort into a creative project like embroidery. And keep your threads short! That's something I had to get used to. But keeping them too long will fluff up the thread and eventually break it as it travels through the fabric with every stitch. Also keeping them shorter avoids lots of annoying tangles and knots.

Colour crush for day 2 of #threaduary 💛🧡❤ It has taken me a long time to be confident enough to use colours in my work.

Lovely busy day yesterday and tomorrow so made the most of the quiet afternoon and embroidered some more details of the Ernst Haeckel inspired embellishment. 🐚 🦑 🐙 #ernsthaeckel#naturalhistory#naturalist#delft#atelier#dressmaker#embroideryisart#embroidery#handembroidered#artformsinnature#kunstformendernatur#siphonophorae#jellyfish#dmcembroidery#threadpainting#dmcthreads

So I got this brilliant book for Christmas and it has so many gorgeous stitch patterns. But I have to be honest, some of the stitch symbols looked like fancy caterpillars and looked very complex. So I started with the hat and the caterpillars became these lovely cables and weren't as difficult as I had previously thought. 🐛🐛🐛

Adding little details to one part to make break up the monotony of filling up the larger parts. Even though I don't mind the shading parts, sometimes it's nice to see instant progress once the smaller details start to bring the image to live. . . . . #ernsthaeckel#jellyfish#artformsinnature#embroideryinstaguild#embroideryart#threadpainting#raisedwork#frenchknots#dmcthreads#dmcembroidery#borduren#naturalhistory#naturalist#delft#atelier#dressmaker#embroideryisart#embroideryartist
