Line embroidery

Recently I've been missing my time in Ireland a lot. As a way of dealing with that, I decided to go through some of my photos and sketches from that time, and transform them into line drawings that I can embroider. I've been drawing them straight on the fabric with pencil, and then using different colors of embroidery floss to pick out the design lines. I really like the way they end up - somewhat simplistic in form, but really lovely.

The first one is of a ruined church on Innismore, and the second one is actually from England, and the ruins of Glastonbury Abbey.
