Creating Beauty One Stitch At A Time

Australian Textile Artists, Margaret Knight and Lynne Berry orchestrated an event like no other for the Chelsea Flower Show.  What was originally a call for 120 stitched poppies ended up to be a garden of 300,000 knitted and crocheted poppies from all around the world.

I enjoy the process of pushing the world of fiber to its limits with the use of knitting needles and various methods of experimentation. Along the way, the lens of my camera captures what I see.
