FLOWER PORTRAITS

FLOWER PORTRAITS: If you would like a portrait of your favourite flower, simply mail me or email me a picture of the flower and I can give you a quote for the cost of the embroidery. If you decide that you are not interested in an embroidery I will return your picture at no charge. My flower portraits are worked in hand embroidery using a single strand of DMC floss in the needle at one time, typically a range of 8 -12  different coloured threads are used in the whole embroidery. The flower is worked in long and short stitches, thousands of stitches are worked following the shape of the leaves and petals resulting in a 3-dimensional realistic embroidery.

A portrait begins at $650 Canadian dollars for a 4 inch by 4 inch embroidery.

$950 Canadian dollars for a 5 inch by 5 inch embroidery.

$1260 Canadian dollars for a 6 inch by 6 inch embroidery.

$1568 Canadian dollars for a 7 inch by 7 inch embroidery.

SHASTA DAISY

A friend of mine wanted a special gift to give to his God-daughter for her christening. We chose a Shasta Daisy which is the symbolic flower for the month that she was born. I embroidered the petals and leaves in long and short stitch, the center of the flower I worked in French knots.

I embroidered the flower's name above the embroidery and girls name and birth date below in trailing stitch.

I offer beginners to advanced kits in the Needle Painting technique.

PURPLE IRIS (GIFT)

When I first started teaching in Calgary Canada the members of the Purple Needle Embroidery shop were very kind and helpful to me. During a holiday at home in England, I embroidered Shelley the owner of the Purple Needle her favourite flower in her favourite colour as a thank you for all her help. The Iris is embroidered in long and short stitch and the stamens are embroidered in long French knots. The wording is embroidered in trailing stitch.
