Blue Flora and Bee Line Embroidery

August 28, 2019

Hello everyone

Hope your week is going well? This week I would like to share with you the Blue line flora and bee line embroidery. I have been working on this for some time and only able to reveal it now. This embroidery is reproduced with kind permission from artist Rachel Pedder Smith in the UK. Rachel generously allowed me to use her beautiful piece Blue Flora and Bee line which I adapted for use in embroidery.

I loved stitching this project – there was lots of interest in each little aspect and I hope Rachel will allow me to use some of her other paintings in future – the project will be available as a pattern very soon.

Rachel is a botanical artist who trained at the Royal College of Art, London. She is best known for her ground-breaking and exquisite 18-foot Herbarium Specimen Painting, displayed at Kew Gardens. She has now introduced a collection of beautiful printed kitchen, textiles and stationery products. Rachel is a lover of all things nature, which is self evident in her beautiful paintings of plants and insects – take some time to explore her online shop they would make gorgeous unique Christmas presents!

As a side note we have sadly had to close the Etsy Shop. It came to our attention that Etsy charges VAT on all products which results in an unnecessary additional expense for the customer. The platform also proved limited as we could not upload PDF files for sale over a certain limit. All items continue to sell from the main shop Trish Burr Embroidery.

Till next time, wherever you are in the world, have a wonderful weekend, keep smiling and happy stitching.
