British Embroidery Emerging

It's so nice to see some British designers emerging and giving us some typically home spun designs. 

I came accross Lara Sparks' designs this week and thought you may be interested to view her simple and yet very effective London scenes.  Especially at a time when the Diamond Jubilee has been so much in the news and the London Olympics will shortly be taking over our TV screens!

My particular favorite is this black and white embroidery, but Lara does do quite a lot with colour too.  She also does completed items for those of you who would prefer something a little quicker than DIY!! You can view more of her work at http://www.larasparks-embroidery.co.uk/index.htm

  1. Reminded me of the wonderful 'Churches of London' cope I spied on Bishop Chartres at the Queen's Jubilee service at St Pauls. Did anyone else get a glimpse?
