Published in SEW SOMERSET Winter 2011!

SEW SOMERSET is a sister publication to SOMERSET STUDIO- one of the premier mixed media/paper art magazines. It features mixed media art that incorporates new techniques with the traditions of hand and machine sewing. Visit to reserve your copy.

Sampler in Blue and Green originated with the idea of historical samplers as a learning tool and record of stitch experiments. This modern version combines hand sewing techniques with faux postage, fabric swatches and found objects like feathers, tags and buttons. The Needle Felted Leaf takes a simple shape and enhances it with lots of layers, beads and hand stitching. The layers include painted muslin, paper and felted wool.


  1. Hi, Lynne--I saw your lovely pieces in "Sew Somerset" today. I love the color scheme--it is one of my favorites!

    May I ask, on the bottom collage pictured here, where did you get the ombre ribbon and the flowered trim that goes around the diamond doily?

    I am always on the lookout for great embellishments!


  2. Hello Lynne!
    Just wanted to let you know I saw these wonderful works in SEW Somerset. I had to comment - I am from Chapel Hill just down the road from you sorta. I do mixed media jewelry and art stuff. My blog is just horrible but hope to work on it this year :
