📍BREAKING NEWS : I have for the first time ever got a blister and a very sore fingertip from too much pinning! This piece has caused me actual suffering! I have worked and reworked some areas and thought it was done more than once only to realise ( or be told) that it wasn’t. Thanks @joshuahwright for pushing me to be better and not settle for just ok. Long story short...I’ve learned a lesson on this one.

Details. I’m working on something new which I’m not ready to share yet but it got me thinking about details... little areas of stitching that inform the eye, that tell the story, that provide richness and depth and quality. I love details.  #areasofdetail #textileart #embroideredtextiles #stitchedart #fabricandthread #contemporarytextileart #textileartist #rachelwrightembroidery

So maybe it’s time to stop saying ‘I  don’t do flowers’. I’ve always loved flowers but they never appealed to me as a subject matter as much as landscape or sky. I have actually really enjoyed portraying them although they’re tough to do and require serious concentration. #textileartist #embroideredtextiles #machineembroidery #stitchedart #artinstitch #flowerstudies #magnolia #daffodils #waterlily #roses #snowdrops #rachelwrightembroidery

Another one finished for @bucksartweeksofficial This one is quite big by my standards so it’s taken a bit longer than I’d hoped.  Now to try and squeeze one more in before delivery day.
