Cow parsley freehand embroidery

cow parsley verges embroidery by Jane Lindsey

The verges on the farm road explode into a froth of cow parsley flowers in mid May. They will have been flat rosettes all winter before the stems rise up, flowers like hanging tassels, in April.

This freehand machine embroidery is a stylised version - repeating forms distilled from the more chaotic jumble of plants - ajuga and the beginnings of bluebells around their feet. It was sewn in several layers in cotton threads on fulled wool.

If you are interested in learning how to draw with your sewing machine, I have a course available, Introduction to machine embroidery which takes you from threading the machine to making pictures. It is a self guided course, a mixture of video and photographs and is included in the membership of the Studio Club.
