I have been stitching Jacobean and Elizabethan style crewel embroidery for over 40 years and now do it in miniature (dolls house) scale. I design and teach it and am now learning Stumpwork. Also love English band samplers and have done a couple of these on 40 count linen and have done blackwork.
Where did you learn your textile skills?
A woman in my town taught crewel embroidery to me, then I did some Erica Wilson pieces and started working on my own designs.
Is there anything else you'd like other members of Stitchin' Fingers to know about you? Please feel free to tell us a little bit about yourself by way of introduction.
I hope folks will look at my crewel embroidery on my blogs and website. I also collect miniatures and dolls houses of a very high standard and you may view them at http://cookiez123.blogspot.com. Do let me hear from you at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!
Thank you so much for your kind comment on my work. It has a hazy look because of the photography. I started this off as a teaching piece, and it was a bit like topsy...it grew and grew. My son and his wife have it it hanging on their wall. You may have seen the full picture on my blog. I will send you the link in an email.
Cookie, your framed Jacobean piece is wonderful. I wish you the best at the show in November. Miniatures are special. I am currently completing a Jacobean piece for the EGA masters crewel program. Are you a member? Laurrel

thanks Cookie, I have looked at your blog, I have a great friend who is doing up a house at the moment, her father made it for her when she was a child and now at 51 she is renevating it and getting a great deal of pleasure from it. I was down visiting her for a few days and came back home yesterday. Here in England it seems doing houses is becoming popular again, I do not think I could work that small but I love to see the work others do. Thankyou for directing me to your blog.
