Rogie Falls no 1

image image

Rogie falls is a beautiful, and for those who can walk without too much trouble, very accessible waterfall just west of Strathpeffer on the River Blackwater in the Scottish Highlands. There is a car park and a path leading down to the falls. It only takes about 10 minutes to walk down but it is fairly steep in places and someone using a wheelchair or even an electric buggy would have difficulty.

To start this embroidery I have roughed out the basic areas in fabric paint on a cotton background. I’ve started with the fir trees in the far distance and will gradually build up the picture from there. Perhaps some of you would like to follow my progress with your own interpretation of the scene?

The next card

I’ve had another embroidery photographed and made into a card. I couldn’t find a square template available to the iPad so I had the image reproduced 50 times and then pasted them onto ready folded cards.    I’ve ordered some stickers for the back saying what the picture is and who made it.   I intend to sell them and make some money for a local charity.   Thoughts appreciated pls.Image
