Haworth Church Yard - Hand Embroidered Stitchery
I am just finishing this little postcard of Haworth Church Yard it is part of my Victorian inspired tinted postcards collection. I have been adding texture to it with French Knots, backstitch, Satin Stitch, Straight Stitch and Fly Stitch. I have created this piece using a photograph I took of the church yard and then altered it in Photoshop to give it a sepia colour. There is a post about it somewhere on the blog! Anyway it's one of my many works in progress which is now getting a long awaited finish! I wanted to add more detail to the grave stones and also create a sense of depth with the colouring of the trees. I have used Fly Stitch in the foreground to build up the foliage by working them elongated in the shape of a Y in various thread thicknesses. I've still to add more stitches to this and grass around the stones, as well as French Knots in the trees. But overall it's pretty much there.
