My gift wrapping skills were put to the test as I carefully prepared these sets of cards today. These little parcels were ordered by someone as Christmas gifts for their different recipients so I have been trying to make each one look and feel special to open. Each has its own personal message from the buyer too. All part of the service folks. #giftwrappingservice #happypost #greetingscards #allwrappedup #easygiftingsolutions #textileartist

This piece has arrived at it’s new home today so I can now share it. It was a commission based on Strumble head in Pembrokeshire. Its taken weeks to complete and is one of the largest pieces I’ve ever made. #strumblehead #strumblelighthouse #pembrokeshirecoast  #textileart #embroideredtextileart #contemporarytextiles #stitchedart #threadpainting

I promised you no more churches so here is something very different I’ve been working on this week. It’s the hottest day of the year so of course I’ve been embroidering a winter scene! It helps to think cool thoughts ❄️🌨 #isitwinteryet #embroideredtextileart #textileartist #machineembroidery #contemporaryembroidery #stitchedart

My youngest tells me I’m ‘milking it’ putting up my commission 1 piece at a time, so here’s 5 at once. From top left clockwise there’s St Mary’s Ashendon, All Saints Wotton Underwood, St John the Baptist Dorton, St James’ Boarstall, and All Saints Brill. #milkingit #milkingitforallitsworth #textileart #contemporaryembroidery #machineembroidered #textileartist

I have been given permission to now show a special piece which I have been working on since late in 2019 and throughout early 2020. It comprises of one main piece and 8 small pieces so today I’m showing the main piece which is #brillwindmill  #brillwindmillbuckinghamshire #windmill #textileart #contemporarytextileart #stitchedart #machineembroidery #embroideredtextileart

Finished! And it’s not even Friday. This piece was loosely inspired by a photo posted by my old school friend from art class. Thanks @jussyrush for the inspiration. I loved her pictures of dramatic skies over wet flat sands and thought it would be challenging to try to recreate that mood or something similar. She lives in a beautiful area which is also really close to my heart as it’s somewhere near to where my Dad grew up and an area that holds happy family memories for me. #textileart #contemporaryembroidery #stitchedart #stitchedstories #embroideredtextiles #machineembroidery #rachelwrightembroidery

These pieces have gone to @oldchapelgallery in Pembridge, Herefordshire as part of their ‘Making Waves‘ exhibition. It’s open from tomorrow (Weds-Sat each week 12-4) If you’re anywhere near this beautiful part of the country the gallery is well worth a visit.  #textileart #contemporaryembroidery #herefordshire #pembridge #oldchapelgallery

Two oldies and a relative newbie. I like looking at how old work stands against new. I remember working on the bottom one which was my first panoramic piece and saying to myself never again. Obviously the pain faded in time 😂😂#textileartist #contemporaryembroidery #machineembroidery #textileart #contemporarytextileart #landscapeart #rachelwrightembroidery #buckinghamshirecraftguild

Today is the final day for @bucksartweeksofficial and the theme is work created in lockdown. These are 4 of the pieces I’ve made during the lockdown along with some commission pieces I can’t show yet. Can’t wait for Bucks Artweeks to return for real in 2021.  #bucksartweeks #bucksartsandcrafts #baw2020 #textileart #contemporarytextiles #embroideredtextileart #textileartist #machinembroidery #bucksartweeks2020 #buckinghamshire #madeinbuckinghamshire

Today’s theme for @bucksartweeksofficial is ‘it’s all in the detail’ and I feel like this is a bit of a personal motto for my work. I love to get into the detail, to observe and draw carefully with the fabrics I select and the stitching I add. You could say I’m passionate about the detail! #bucksartweeks #bucksartsandcrafts #baw2020 #textileart #contemporarytextiles #embroideredtextileart #textileartist #machinembroidery #bucksartweeks2020 #buckinghamshire #madeinbuckinghamshire

Today’s theme for @bucksartweeksofficial is ‘texture’so I’ve compiled a few here including feathers, fur, scales, water, grasses and rock....all created with fabric and stitch. Some are easier than others. Stitch lends itself very well to looking like fur or feathers whereas a scaly lizard was a huge challenge.  #bucksartweeks #bucksartsandcrafts #baw2020 #textileart #contemporarytextiles #embroideredtextileart #textileartist #machinembroidery #bucksartweeks2020 #buckinghamshire #madeinbuckinghamshire

Today’s theme for #bucksartweeksofficial is ‘joy’. This piece is a recent commission which I can now share with you. Apart from being right up my street in terms of colours and subject matter, it is also somewhere dear to my heart and a place as a family we have been lucky to share great times with good friends. I don’t often feel this way about commissions but this one was a ‘joy’ to do.  #bucksartweeks #bucksartsandcrafts #baw2020 #textileart #contemporarytextiles #embroideredtextileart #textileartist #machinembroidery #bucksartweeks2020 #buckinghamshire #madeinbuckinghamshire
