So there I was, just having a little late night browse around Facebook actually when I came across this.
Now, I've been vaguely aware of Lou Gardiner for a little while. You know - she'd sort of seeped into my conciousness.
But this has really fired me up again. Just look how she works on these pieces, how she uses freehand embroidery to make the work sing. And I love the technique of reverse embroidery and the way she transfers the design to the fabric. As well as being a visual feast, there are tricks and tips buried in here.
