Guess who has published a new embroidery website? Read on, and I’ll tell you….
Trish Burr has published a website – but it’s not just “any” website. It’s really pretty!
The site promises a free project, too – so that’s something to keep an eye on while it’s being developed.
What’s really nice is Trish’s gallery. You can see thumbnails of her work and click on them for larger versions. The larger versions are wonderful – you can see the individual stitches, which is great for developing an understanding of stitch direction and color combinations.
If you want to know a little bit more about Trish, you can read the article I posted on her and her book publishing adventures. The article is in two parts: Trish Burr, part 1, and Trish Burr, part 2. You’ll see some of her works in the articles, too, but you can see them Even Better on her website!
Trish is a master at the whole long-and-short stitch / thread painting technique. Her works are featured in Country Bumpkin’s Inspirations Magazine, and she’s published four books, three of which are on long and short stitch techniques. If you’re interested in this form of embroidery, but have perhaps been intimidated by its look of complexity, you may just be inspired enough by looking at Trish’s work to plunge on in!
