The photo at the top was sent to me by a friend who had visited the ruined church, Cill Chriosd, on the Bradford to Elgol road on Skye. She thought it might inspire me and it did.
I used the inkjet printer to transfer the photo onto fine cotton fabric and then set to work. The printed fabric was then tacked to wadding before I added machine and hand embroidery stitching, as well as textured threads to give a 3D effect. Pieces of Tyvek, that I had coloured and heat treated, were added to enhance the mossy stonework. I then quilted the stonework. My clever husband made a beautiful wooden box frame for it and I presented the finished piece to my friend who has it on the wall above her weaving loom.
