A Travelling Page ...

I started this travelling page several weeks ago but it was a very stop/start project.

I had space-dyed several pieces of cotton with Brusho and from those I selected a piece that I thought had an Autumnal feel to it. The design, by Sam Bourne, was published in Issue 8 of Stitch Magazine in January/February 2001. I have been exchanging Travelling Pages with friends on the Embroiderer’s Guild forum; this design must have stayed in my mind because when I came to do a page for a member who loves trees and oak trees in particular, I remembered it.


I found the instructions very easy to follow.


I enjoyed making the component parts ...



... and assembling them into the finished design.


Happy Stitching

It's delightful! I love the texture of the acorn cups - it's just right.

This is a lovely piece. I like the different techniques and yet the simplicity of the design.

The creation of a thousand forests is in one acorn...
