The theme for last year’s competition at our branch of the Embroiderers’ Guild was Autumn, and this was the winner.

I had a silk hanky which was dark green with an area of beige, which came as an extra when I ordered some plain silk hankies.  Rather than waste it, I decided to make a piece of silk paper, and put it to one side, wondering what to do with it.  Then I decided it was forest green so it might as well be a forest with trees – and this was the result.  The water at the bottom is a piece of voile, which I thought was white, but when there are several thicknesses, it is a very very pale violet
