Along with a vintage doily, the words 'keep it simple' are freehand embroidered onto stripy turquoise Irish linen.

The embroidery is done using a basic sewing machine fitted with an embroidery foot. I write freehand straight onto the fabric using black thread.

This piece is mounted on a medium 8"/21cm embroidery hoop (made in Britain).
The last photo is to help you get an idea of the size of this hoop.

Ready to hang.

Each hoop is unique due to the nature of freehand machine embroidery, which I think adds to the charm. There will be slight variations from the photos shown. The doily may be different but will be equally lovely.
