Embroidered poetry commission


The poem - Where the Mind is without Fear was my first commission and that has since brought about others.
I received another commission to embroider the very same poem for a dear friend. 
Similar but different is what makes each piece so unique.
The embroidered poem is for her father who served in the Indian airforce  and so I chose to embroider the poem in blue.

Working on the border. My signature appliqued silk circles with multi coloured buttonhole wheels. 
The completed piece. I hope my friend's father will like the way I've visually represented his favourite poem.
