A tapestry created based on the above picture.

Suffolk ProvinceLowestoftJill Draper is 62 years old. He is the mother of two children, also a grandmother with four grandchildren, now living with Wenhaston with her husband Peter. I work hands with sewing machines every day in the natural light, working on sewing machines, but because it is a work that requires concentration very often, embroidering time is up to about 6 hours per day He said that he decided it.

Jill says that he often gets inspiration from Elizabethan tapestries. To create a tapestry, first draw a landscape with dyes on satin or silk cloth, heat and fix them, then select colors from sewing threads of thousands of colors prepared from thousands of colors and embroider them with sewing machines . The part that uses silk thread seems to sew one needle by hand.

Embroidery has a prejudice of the grandmother's hobby, and Jill mourns the present situation which is often neglected compared to other art. "Embroidery work tends to be seen as a craft from artwork, and now there are also computer-controlled sewing machines that can reproduce with photograph scanning and embroidery, but the same as using painters and brushes by painters Just as I am using sewing machines, each piece has its own art of being unique in this world.
