Good morning. The first job on my list of jobs to do is to post these photo's taken in the church at Thirsk. I love it when you walk into a church and there is a tapestry hanging on the wall. This one certainly has the 'WOW' factor. A joint effort from the crafty people of Thirsk, it depicts all the important landmarks in the town and surrounding area. I didn't photograph the whole thing as I wanted to get up close to show how much work has gone into it. Each individual stitch lovingly added, covering the whole of the canvas backing. The edges have been rag rugged which makes a colourful frame for the whole thing.
you can see more of her creations here.
There were some pictures featuring very intricate beaded embroidery.
If you want to know more, This is a good site to read up about Thirsk. It has a live web cam pointing at the area around the Clock Tower, and a short video about the Herriot Museum. I hope you have enjoyed my little trip 'up north', Yorkshire certainly is a beautiful county.
Must keep busy and tick off a few jobs on my 'to do' list. Enjoy your Sunday. Toodle pip.
