Pulled Pork!

Whitework embroidery samplers

This is my Royal School of Needlework Future Tutor sampler module in whitework embroidery.

'Whitework' is a catch-all term for a multitude of techniques including Broderie Anglaise, Richelieu, Ayreshire, shadow work, trailing and pulled & drawn patterns.

These are highly - skilled techniques using white threads on white fabric, which requires washing on completion. I hope you enjoy my sense of humour in using a pig as a subject - particularly for the pulled patterns.

 

Pulled pork; geddit?

If you like, you could interpret this as an homage to 'Charlotte's Web'.
