One of my favourite past times is creating my Homebroideries - custom portraits of homes, wedding venues or other special places.
Working from a photograph I sketch the building out which acts as a "pattern" for the appliqué which I cut from my stash of old, new and recycled fabrics. I iron them onto the backing fabric and then using the needle of my 1965 Singer sewing machine as my pen I draw the the outlines and details of the building.
Then comes my favourite part, embellishing with hand embroidery.
