Immersing Myself in Hand Embroidery

About half an hour away from where I live is The Sunbury Embroidery Gallery.  I have known about it for a while but never visited it so I thought now was the time to go to get inspiration.  The gallery is set in a beautiful walled garden and there is a cafe which serves lunch and teas.

The gallery is free to view and has massive embroidered panels along one wall as well as the insignia of local organisations and companies.  Here are some samples:

Some of the detail was really quite delightful:

I took some lovely pictures of the garden which included cherab statues - I see the potential for a collage here.  You'll have to wait and see.
