My paper and stitch collage is featured in Stitch magazine this month. It shows the step by step stages, from the inspiration and materials through to the finished framed embroidery.

Take a look, its a great project for beginners

Its a view of Dinas Mawddwy, a beautiful part of Wales near Dolgellau.
