Welcome to my embroidery site. Although I’ve embroidered most of my life, it is within the last fifteen years I’ve taken it seriously. I’ve discovered I don’t count well, so most of what you’ll see is surface embroidery (with a few exceptions). I find it very hard to do someone else’s designs without changing something. I take classes to learn techniques (not for the projects themselves) and try very hard to select teachers who are comfortable with their designs being changed. As you will see one of my favorite techniques is crazy quilting, my favorite subject matters are trees and leaves, and my passion for color has not diminished.

I’ve arranged by embroidery work by (1) themes, (2) techniques and (3) inspirations.
