aisling smyth

Busy day today stretching my first batch of completed embroideries for my solo show in August. These started as machine embroideries, but now comprise of machine and hand stitch in almost equal measures. I have filled in the background of the work with areas of seeding in silk embroidery thread. I have goldworke areas and have also sewn lots of crystals into the work making it twinkle in the light. 

My next set of work will be machined out onto different fabric and will feature more shaded work.
