Welcome to the creative home of artist and maker Charlotte Lyons.


Stitch1
 

For awhile now, I've been trying to finish my stitch book started for my students at Squam. No reason to rush except that it's a pleasure to work on. Like knitting, it fits in my handbag and is work-able in most situations.

Stitch7

Freehand flowers on linen stitched in the car on the way back from Indiana in May.

Stitch11  

I'm fond of old textiles, wool, pearl cotton, french knots and chain stitch. And white on white- or nearly so.

Stitch5 

Backstitch meandering on a last little scrap of wool blanket.

Stitch10 

Threaded running stitch (fun!) attempted on the way out to IU.

Stitch9 

Feather stitch is my favorite go-to stitch. Double feather below.

Stitch6 

Bullion stitch (far right) ... essentially a long french knot.

Stitch2 

Little bits and a lost nametag I made for Squam, misplaced and then it surfaced too late. Almost finished. Might have to make another stitch book for summer. It's here.
