Creative Machine Embroidery Magazine

Life is busy with two little boys, so it's nice to have a little something to talk about. My Meadowsweet piece made a small appearance in the May/June 2014 issue of Creative Machine Embroidery Magazine. Please ignore the typo. Unfortunately my name is misspelled!

My piece and short blurb (name misspelled)
Meadowsweet, 2010, Kirsten Chursinoff
In 2010 I wrote:
I tried something new with the Meadowsweet.  I made my usual background out of a hundred or so scrap pieces, but then I added colour with Jacquard Textile paints.  I painted after most of the stitching was complete. You can see the glowing effect around the blossoms.  I darkened the area just outside of the stitched blossoms.

French knots (in my loopy and loose way), appliqué, free-motion, couching.

The plant does have red stems, which are fun and rather vein-like.
