Inspirations Calendar | October Project

1st October 2021

October is typically a month of mixed fortunes when it comes to the weather. Be it cooling down or warming up, the combination of changeable weather, hay fever and unpredictable rain can be a little unsettling.

Luckily turning the page of your Inspirations calendar to October is a real treat! The featured project is enough to make anyone feel truly inspired.

Originally featured in Inspirations issue #104, Carnation Tile by Fiona Hibbett is a gorgeously elegant stumpwork piece based on an original Art Nouveau design. This style emerged in the late 1800s and was characterised by sinuous lines, beautiful shapes and intricate organic subject matter.

This project perfectly encapsulates the period. Worked on ivory satin, the coral flowers and curving, blue-green leaves are beautifully embellished with tiny beads and a hint of lustrous gold. The resulting piece is definitely a work of art that would take pride of place on any wall.

We love that needlework can make any month a wonderful one, no matter the weather, season or temperature.
