Inspired by Lichen and colour

Lichen inspires me! There are tiny worlds amongst the damp tendrils. Tiny flowers, shapes, textures and surprising bright colours.

This little piece of embroidery in progress has tiny crochet cups made with hand dyed silk thread. They have been sewn onto space dyed silk scrim which has been layered onto a piece of silk and merino Nuno felt. I have used the same thread to hand embroider french knots and feather stitches and there is a woven wheel on there too.
