Share & Learn

A Pygmy Kingfisher

 

◕‿◕ Greetings to you from a warm and sunny Cape Town. It’s nearly weekend  and I have something really special to show you today by world-renowned needlecraft artist: Trish Burr from Cape Town, South Africa.

 

Trish is famous for her beautiful  books and this is one of her best-sellers: Needle Painting Embroidery Fresh Ideas For Beginners— a complete guide for beginners to learn the technique.

…and here is her little Pygmy Kingfisher – one of the first birds that Trish made and it’s still one of her favourites.

Thank you Trish for sharing this little Kingfisher with all of us  

I hope to see you very soon … it’s always so good to spend time with you — creativity flows!

 

 

Have a lovely weekend everyone and sending lots of African sunshine to embroiderers experiencing freezing temperatures in Europe. -30 °Celsius — that’s unimaginable to an African soul. Take care and keep warm.

 

I will show more of Trish Burr’s beautiful pieces in the weeks to come. So do…

  • Join me (and many other talented embroiderers) on Facebook

Till next time

 

Happy weekend

 

Love
