This is an amazingly beautiful embroidery of a cardinal!!! I have many of your bird embroideries and this is one of my favorites! It is so perfect for this time of year! I have added him to my bird wall and he seems very happy with the other embroidered birds! I give them lots of attention and sing to them daily! Thank you so much for your lovely embroidery! I am so happy to these in my home. They bring me such joy!!!

Coloured Blackwork Stitches

Hi, I'm Sami Teasdale also known as Teasemade.  I was taught to embroider as a young girl by my mother. I went on to study Fine Art, and work in Product Design which led to me becoming a teacher for a while wielding tools in a noisy classroom. It is nice to now return to the threads of my youth. Going to Spain lots as children where everything was heavily embroidered, bed linens, table cloths, memories of these still tangle my thoughts and inspire my passion for Blackwork. Hand embroidery is a language that makes sense to me.

Birds, you may have noticed I like those. I always have, but they became a daily fascination of mine while sky gazing from my stitching armchair, the sky is full of such beauty. The more I see and read, the more I want to learn about the feathered beauties and capture them in stitch.

Most days you’ll find me stitching coloured Blackwork jewellery on linen and Liberty prints or larger textile art embroideries. I also enjoy working on commissions. I design embroidery patterns when not busy stitching, or you'll sometimes find me designing craft tutorials and patterns for craft magazines.
