Thank you so much for the beautiful Zebra Finch embroidery! She is a rainbow of color and movement. She is truly a one of a kind work of art! She has settled in among the other birds & she sends her loving tweets to you!!!

Thank you Sami for allowing me to purchase your lovely & colorful Zebra Finch over a few payments. She loves her new home & has settled in with all of your other birdies. They all live happily together around my oval window. They get lots of light there and out of the window they get to see morning doves, chickadees, sparrows, bluebirds, several varieties of finches and occasional blue jay and woodpecker. I get just as much joy from my indoor birds as I do from my outdoor birds! Wishing you good health and many beautiful bird embroideries!

About

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 such as bed linens and 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. 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.
