While I'm on holiday I love sketching and with my new found passion for hand embroidery I've started to stitch from my sketches.  This is the view across the river entrance at Benodet in south Brittany drawn in Triplus water soluble pens.

I use plain linen as a base then add layers of organza just like watercolour washes before stitching the details with various threads and yarns. 
 I like the idea of interpreting my sketches into other pieces of art, what do you think?
