Description

A Winter Goddess Tapestry cushion, wall hanging or picture kit to embroider using Victorian Cross Stitch. Follow the Colour and symbol chart in Anchor Tapestry wool on canvas.

In 2005, I was approached by Traquair House to create a collection of tapestry kneelers. My brief was to look around the House and choose images and embroidery to inspire new designs.

The Winter Goddess was inspired by the Ceiling Painting depicting a fertility goddess in the Upper Drawing Room atTraquair House. This design is one of a set of four which also includes Goddess designs for the other seasons of Summer, Autumn and Spring.

Further details were inspired by the amazing embroideries on display at Traquair House including Stuart Petit Point and Jacobean slips.

The complete Traquair House Chapel Needlework Collection is on view in the chapel and was embroidered by community stitchers to celebrate the 900th anniversary of Traquair House. Traquair House is a uniquely wonderful place to visit, once there, you will fall in love!

The design is sewn dramatically in rich colours on a pale lavender background with soft cream snowflakes. The Goddess Designs all have season relevant flora and fauna. Winter has robins perching in amongst the winter foliage and Summer has lots of flowers, butterflies and a few birds inspired by embroideries of a chaffinch and a woodpecker.

This design and would be enjoyed by all levels of experience. Sewn using Victorian cross stitch, no need for a frame.

I’m hugely motivated by colour, it’s exhilarating and weirdly calming. I love chopping and stitching, the more details the better. So any form of Needlework is perfect Everything has to be fitted in around my five boys, we live in rural Scotland, so it’s miles to everything. Online shops and selling from my studio shop in Peebles is vital. I have spent time teaching Needlework at local schools and realise how much kids need to craft. You should see the smiles when they realise that they can do it! I have a range of small kits specifically designed for children and beginners, the are already in velvet gift bags. Perfect for kid’s party gifts.
People say I must be a patient person but actually I am very busy and get bored easily. My Needlework Collection is really a product of this, I was uninspired by available tapestry and embroidery and started to create by own. My range of tapestry kits, Animal Fayre Designer Tapestry Kits Collection was launched in 2001 at the British Craft Trade Fair and I have never looked back!
I run the Scottish Contemporary Crewel Work Studio and Animal Fayre Designs (my unique handbags) from my quirky shop, Gustaf’s Studio and Gallery, Peebles, a busy market town in the Scottish Borders. Check out my Facebook page for loads of piccies
