Rosie and Bear in the Orchard



Back in 2010 I began to stitch again seriously after a long break when I barely picked up a needle being too busy with work and family life. One of my first projects – that I later went on to develop into a series – was a set of images of my daughter Rosie and her faithful friend Bear as I remembered them from nearly thirty years ago now. I’ve been stitching regularly now for more than a decade so I thought it would be fun to revisit one of my very first designs and bring it right up to date with some of the new stitches and techniques I’ve acquired along the way.
