I'm Sami, also known as Teasemade.  I was taught to embroider as a young girl by my mother. I went on to study Fine Art, which led me to become a teacher for a while using all sorts of tools in a noisy classroom. It is nice to now return to the threads of my youth. Hand embroidery is a language that makes sense to me, as I see life in coloured blackwork.

Birds became a daily fascination of mine while sky gazing from my armchair, the sky is full of such beauty. The more I see and read, the more I want to learn about feathered beauties and capture them in stitch.
