What Are You Stitching?
12th August 2022
For long time readers of All Stitched Up!, you will know that Trish Burr’s designs are always popular. People love her threadpainted projects just as much as they love her distinctive whitework with colour designs. She is well known and loved for both of these styles, and we often receive photos of beautifully finished Trish Burr projects that cause us to ooh and ahh in delight. Here are a few more for you to enjoy.
‘Last year, we decided to temporarily relocate to our little farm in northeast Tasmania. I retired last year after 58 years in corporate life and began to focus on threadpainting, following years of cross stitch, crochet, and quilting.’
‘Here is my finished Trish Burr Tuscan Landscape, which I bought as a kit. I just loved working it. When we packed the car for our move, I had Trish Burr’s Gatsby on the go, which I have almost finished.’
This is a beautiful finish, Sandra and such a fitting piece to have hanging on a wall in your farm in Tasmania. Trish’s kits are so wonderful to do, so we’re glad you enjoyed this one and we’ll be looking forward to seeing Gatsby when it is finished as well.
‘Last summer I was inspired by the colourful embroideries of Trish Burr. I completed this beautiful embroidery project that I modified a little to add my personal touch.’
‘This is my first experience with threadpainting. I have always loved the look of the traditional pictures showing lavender fields, and I enjoyed embroidering it even more. I gave it to my cousin who is a painter. She thought the embroidery was extraordinary!’
It is extraordinary, Therese! It is a beautiful project finished to absolute perfection. You should be very proud of your work and enjoy the well-deserved accolades!
‘I’ve been on a Trish Burr binge for a while now. Here are a couple of projects I’ve completed recently. Now I just have to save up my pennies to get them framed!’
‘Stitching is getting a little more difficult for me because I now have a tremor in my dominant hand, but it’s not going to stop me – it just takes me a little longer to get things finished.’
We’re so glad you can still enjoy your stitching, despite the challenges you are facing, Joanne. If these projects are anything to go by, your stitching is just beautiful no matter how long it takes you to complete.
Do you have a favourite designer who you just love to stitch? Do you collect books, patterns and magazines that feature that designer? Do you get excited every time you hear that they’ve released a new project? Or do you love the work of a range of different designers?
Whatever designs you love, and whatever you like to stitch, we’d like to see it. Send us a picture of your work with a bit of information about the project and your stitching journey to firstname.lastname@example.org
