Birds
Southern Pochard

Picture approximately 30cmx 40cm background fabric. This design was inspired by the beautiful landscape as well as, a love of the water birds, which live on the estuary and lakes in the Southern Cape. This type of subject matter is ideal for the manipulation of textured threads and clever free-style embroidery.

Mandarin Ducks

Picture approximately 40cmx 40cm background fabric. Fine stitchery and texture work well together in shades of ochre and blue.

Nesting Weaver

Picture approximately 35cmx 35cm background fabric. The Weaver is a wonderful combination of fine embroidery techniques and textured three-dimensional effects. The foliage is hand appliqué, embellished with chenille and bouclé, which encases the trapunto bird in fine needle painting. Textured threads suggest feathers.

Barred Owlets
(French version available)

Picture approximately 35cmx 35cm background fabric. The challenge of this embroidery is the interpretation of the appearance of these beautiful creatures. Their head and shoulders are barred (striped) and this effect is translated in couched bouclé and mohair. Wonderful attention to detail is seen in the eyes and beak. The owlets are a clever manipulation of textured threads. The bodies are both similar yet different and this effect is achieved with colour grading and shading in "crazy " wools. The foliage is stumpwork and embellished appliqué. The picture is completed with subtle background branches and shading which marry the birds and their surrounding foliage.

Crazy Chickens
Red Leghorn Cock, Light Sussex Cock
(French version available),
White Crested Black Poland Cock and Silver Duckwing Old English Game Cock
(French version available)

Each picture approximately 30cmx 30cm background fabric. These four roosters are wonderfully extravagant birds, which just cry out for interpretation in exotic threads and fun stitches. Fine outlines are worked in traditional stitches in variegated threads whilst the plumage is a mixture of creative threads.
