Tuscan Landscape Pattern

Hello everyone

Please forgive me for neglecting you the last few weeks, we have been doing the photo shoot for the new book and it has been a very busy time. This week I am thrilled to announce the arrival of Tuscan Landscape. It is now available as a PDF digital pattern in the store together with an optional iron on transfer.

Tuscan Landscape Embroidery

Tuscan Landscape Pattern

As mentioned to you previously I have been attempting to paint my own source images for reproduction into embroidery and this is the first embroidery creation reproduced from my very own watercolour painting! OK so it may not be a ‘Van Gogh’ but the rudimentary painting gave me a basic composition and colours with which to work the embroidery from and I loved every minute of it. The great thing about creating my own source painting was that I could plan where all the stitches would go when drawing it, so much easier than using an existing artwork and trying to adapt it.

Embroidery

I sat with a bundle of threads and had a great time choosing colours and adding textures along the way. You will notice that there are french knots on some of the trees and bushes to add dimension? I took note of what you asked for in the survey and for those of you who prefer to stitch a larger design there is an additional tracing outline included with the pattern in a bigger size. The iron on transfer includes both the actual size and the enlarged size outlines.

I hope you will enjoy this embroidery piece as much as I have enjoyed creating it for you and keep watching because there will be more in the series to come.

New Book

Many of you have emailed asking about the new book and when it will be published. This is a book commission from the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew in London, UK that I have been working on for the last 18 months. The commission is to reproduce some of their beautiful botanical illustrations into embroidery. Many of you probably know Kew Gardens as a place to visit and explore their stunning gardens and landscapes, but did you know that they have the largest collection of botanical paintings in the world? These are preserved in their extensive library and some are on display in the onsite galleries.

This will be my first publication with Search Press in the UK and although I can’t reveal too much at this stage, I can tell you that it is like no other book I have produced before, it has been a rare privilege and I am very excited about it. The good news is that it is nearly complete, the bad news is that it takes 6 months to reach production stage and go to print so it will not be released till early 2020. I will share more with you as soon as I am able.

Till next time wherever you are in the world, keep smiling and happy stitching!

Trish

  2. Your site seems to have rejected my PayPal, at least that’s what I think the message I got from PayPal was telling me. Have you had any problems with American accounts before? I would love to buy this Tuscan landscape but can’t figure out what’s happening with PayPal. Suggestions?

    1. Hi Theresa, so sorry to hear you are having trouble with checkout, what a nuisance! We process hundreds of orders every week from USA and other parts of the world and most of them go through no problem at all but there is always the odd customer who has a problem. I have contacted Paypal and they say that sometimes an individual bank may put restrictions on certain sites. We can get around this by sending a manual Paypal invoice and this normally resolves the issue. I have sent you a recovery for your cart and we will get it sorted, don’t worry! Trish
