    merhaba ben Mürvet kitabınızı aldım ve beyaz çiçek denilen deseninizi değişik şekilde yerleştirerek çalıştım çok güzel oldu teşekkürler

  3. Hello from sunny Florida (USA). Were you born knowing this work? I’ve never seen anything like it. I’m hoping one day to be able to order one of your kits. I’m afraid that it will cost as much to mail the parcel to the USA as the project itself costs. Hoping one day soon. Thanks for sharing your beautiful talent with us. Your work is fantastick. Phyllis

    • Thanks Phyllis it is always good to get positive feedback and am always happy to help once you are ready to get started. Trish

    Hi Trish
    I have seen your work before on the net but this is very first time i have come to your beautiful blog. Your work is breath taking. I showed it my husband and he can not believe that it is embroidery and that to hand embroidery. Your beautiful work is such an inspiration.

    Hi Cayce,
    I leave in South of France, I am a sticher and I just discover your works. They take my breathe away, I can’t believe that it is possible to stitch such gorgeous portraits. My son who is 10 years old, saw the pictures with me and said : ” ohhhh, it’s not possible !…” because his eyes like mine, were wondered (I’m not sure for wondered !… Sorry for my english) by your needle paintings. Thank you to show us that everything is possible with passion…
    Have a lot of wonderfull paintings time and thank you to give us dream and beauty.
    PS : Is it true that you have books about your needle portraits, and where to find them ?

  19. Your work is fantastic! This is so beautiful! Sure you are very talented.
    Thanks for sharing these beauties here.

  20. ho appena acquistato il tuo libro, e’ stupendo, non vedo l’ora di iniziare a fare qualche tuo ricamo. ho gia’ fatto qualche piccolo ricamo col punto pittura, ma voglio provare i tuoi che sono favolosi. sei bravissima, ciao francesca da italia-piacenza

  21. When showing people your work, they think they are painted … and hard for them to believe it’s needle and threads!!!

    I feel the same way! LOL

    Your sharing makes such a difference for so many of us (speaking for all!).

    Thank you!

  27. Truly amazing! You are so talented!! Love your work.

  28. Trish, what size needle do you use most of the time?

    You’re definitely whetting my stitching appetite again.
