… by using a fish net made from silk sewn together by gold thread! This is an exert of a bigger piece.
The family lace panel is finally finished! It is ca 40x80cm and took about 1800 meters of thread. Above you can see the embroidery all done, and below, I´ve used water to remove the soluble fabric. I´ve used a sea-green tulle between the layers of soluble fabric, to make sure the stitches stay where they […]
Days are long and busy and interesting. Today I´m finally back working on the big family lace portrait. Once it´s all done the water-soluable fabric will be removed, and the lace will appear.

Both things are happening in October, but since I am the poster-person, here they are: Information about the activities in […]
I am trying to explore different options, different techniques and different expressions before the big embroidery exhibition next summer. One thing that´s been quite common around here, a generation or two ago, are these embroidered wall-hangings. Some of them have a saying from the Bible, and other, like this one, welcomes you into the home. […]
I´m out of thread! And my family is not all there yet! Stay tuned….
I finally started working on a piece I first thought of almost a year ago. When I was experimenting with the freestyle machine embroidery on the water-soluble fabric for my textile-culture-exam, I wanted to make a new type of lace curtain. A contemporary and very personal one. So I made a big digital collage with […]« Previous Entries
