Bonsai Hand Embroidery

A few months ago I put up a post showing a hand-embroidered bonsai tree. Here are some photographs of another work I produced in the same series.

My husband Alex is a bonsai enthusiast and I would love to say that the trees I embroidered were his but they were really hybrids between his real trees and photos of grand Japanese trees (plus a liberal dose of imagination here and there!)

Alex made hand-crafted bonsai pots as a business and the pots in all my pictures were modelled on his work.
