On the Tay – Tayport Lighthouse

My latest embroidery piece is Tayport Lighthouse. I have not tried to stitch a detailed picture of the lighthouse and its surrounding buildings. Rather I have focussed on the lighthouse itself and the hillside and the river. The piece is for display at the Scottish Embroiderers’ Guild’s Regional Day next year. This will be in Dundee and submissions are requested for embroidery in a hoop on the topic – On the Tay.img_4505The fabric is linen and most of the threads are from my diminishing stash of Paternayan Persian wool. One strand of this was used throughout. The grey and black on the lighthouse and the brown seeded bits are Appleton wool.

I am now working on another Bargello medley piece, which will probably keep me busy till Christmas! Happy stitching.
