Cape Dutch Gable
The Cape Dutch homestead is our special heritage. A charming illusion of a pencil sketch is enhanced in fine silk threads in ecru, warm shades of taupe and grey.
The challenge is the limited palette so that the homestead emerges from the foliage sketch.
Many different composite stitches and woven techniques overlaid with couching are used for depth of field in the door and windows.
Should you wish to embroider the trees and foliage around the homestead, there are many ideas on our website and in our book, ‘Delicious Embroidery.’
