Crazy quilt "Prairie" #3, hand embroidery added...

Hand embroidery added, stem stitch, bullion, french knots, coral, etc.

Embroidery over linen, close up.

This section of embroidery took me a while. I like the effect of the pearl cotton thread. Next I'll get out the buttons, beads and laces and begin the interviewing, layering process.
 I have been following a mixed-media artist, Gabrielle Pollacco. She is a brilliant embellisher and sure knows her way around color. I get so inspired seeing her amazing work. Art is art regardless of the media.


  1. Your embroidery is made up of a lot of lovely stitches. With beads, buttons and lace this will be even more scrumptious!

    1. Thank you, Queenie, embellishing is fun, isn't it?

  2. Pearl cotton is one of my favourite threads to work with - I love the depth of detail it gives and it's so easy to stitch with.

  3. Janie, you never fail....every time I visit there is beautiful, rich work on here. It's always a pleasure....
