Inspirations Calendar | July Project
26th June 2020
How is it almost July already?! Although the year is racing by, July’s calendar project is one you should take your time over.
‘Gillian’ is a hare worked in exquisite blackwork diaper patterns. However, rather than simply making use of different weights of black thread to represent shadow and light, she is stitched in gorgeous colour and sports a sinuous botanical pattern across her lithe body.
‘Gillian’ was incredibly popular when she first appeared in Inspirations issue #97. Maria del Valle Olivera designed this fabulous creature, gazing elegantly back over her shoulder, ears cocked but with an unconcerned expression on her regal face.
Perfect for both counted embroidery and surface embroidery lovers alike, Gillian combines both techniques in this unique project.
