Texture in stitch adds a extra dimension to a piece of work, mixing up different thicknesses of thread and chunky stitches gives wonderful surfaces. This week I have been looking at images showing the different approaches that people take to raise the surface of stitch.
Both of these lovely pieces of work are by Stevie Walker. Nature captured in a very expressive and individual way.
Beautiful and inspiring work from Gavin Fry.
