My name is Christine Mumford and I love embroidery and textiles.
My interest started when a I was invited to join a small local group in our neighbourhood and where the lady who ran it was extremely talented in embroidery. She was also very enthusiastic, making sure you managed to achieve a finished piece of work.
I have not looked back since, having until recently been a member of the Oswestry Embroidery Guild, entering textile competitions run by the Drapers Guild in Shrewsbury and gaining success in these competitions
My inspiration for this piece of work was from a picture I found of a kingfisher and thought that something so beautiful and colourful would be worthy of looking at its reflection from time to time.
