First Place in Creative Embroidery / Mixed Media Section at Royal Melbourne Show

This year I decided (finally) that I would put forward some of my textile art into the Royal Melbourne Show.  I entered three pieces, all triptychs – and one of them won first place in the section “Creative Embroidery / Mixed Media”!  A nice surprise!  Unfortunately I didn’t get to see them hanging in the show….

The piece that won, “Splash”, is a pelican having a bath.  I chose elements from the overall original photo and digitally printed them onto fabric, which I then free motion machine embroidered.  The top panel has copious embroidery, the next down has less, and the bottom only certain areas stitched.
