Debra’s embroidery is a delight. Her work is a blend between primitive folk art style and contemporary vivid, rich hues. The combination is whimsical and fun. I think of the pillows as being the accent that makes the room come together. Using hand dyed wool, embellishments and a charming style, Debra creates pieces that are very special. Pin cushions, pillows, eye glass cases made with double thickness wool and pearl cotton embroidery thread. Better called yummy because when it’s served up on a platter, it looks good enough to eat! Using hand dyed wool as the background fabric; cotton or silk as the cut-out, Debra hand stitches each appliqué on the background. She uses hand dyed the skirt weight wool for the background.
