I’ve been having a little go with some hand stitching trying out various stitches. One of my favourites that I haven’t used for a long time is Bokhara couching. I like the solid, but textured effect it produces. I’ve also been trying out some shisha using large sequins and some other cretan stitches. I like the cretan stitches because you can make them look open or solid depending on how you place them. I think I will keep experimenting with these and using them in larger works.

About Nicky Perryman

Hey, I'm a textile artist based in the UK. I like playing around with fabric paint, stitching both hand and machine embroidery and I have far too many sequins. I'm inspired by nature, its mysteries, subtleties, delights and complexities. The outer natural world has its counterpart in the inner spiritual world and I am also inspired by folklore, poetry, fairytales, stories of long ago when the spirits of nature seemed less shy than they do today, as well as my own shamanic journeys into the dreamland.
