Lorna’s book, Embroidered Country Garden, is available through the shop. It has many wonderful ideas and patterns to inspire you to create beautiful hand-stitched floral designs inspired by nature.

This turkey work stitch, or tufting, is used to create a delightful soft 3D effect. You can then use this stitch to create the flowers on thistles or the centre of the clematis flower, the body of a bumblebee maybe, or even a soft body for a caterpillar.

Lorna likes to use stranded threads, rather than perle, as she feels these give a better finished result. And check out her suggestions for the travel toothbrush and sellotape!
