Meet the very popular Jackie Cardy of Dog Daisy Chains. An embroiderer who lives in Lancashire, England she specializes in using silk and velvet which she embellishes with machine embroidery. She has developed her pieces into some very interesting jewelry. Some of her work has been featured in Quilting Arts Magazine http://www.quiltingarts.com/Fine-Sewing-Techniques/.
Her hearts and leaves are wonderful. http://dogdaisychains.blogspot.com/ I love the texture and atmosphere (yes atmosphere) she creates with her pieces.
