I've finally managed to complete my challenge for May only 2 months behind. While I was doing it I kept feeling that something was familiar and I can't figure out why. I've looked at blogs I read regularly to see if it's because someone has done something like this but can't find anything so my apologies if anyone out there has done a piece similar to this I honestly didn't mean to copy.
The theme for May was 'the Spring of Creativity'. The challenge was to create a fibre piece to depict flowers. I chose Level 2: Create your flowers on a pieced green background using 3 or more green fabrics.
I started by painting nappy liners with silk paints then cut them up and ironed
them on to a piece of cotton then used a fancy stitch to make it look as if it was appliquéd.
The flowers are made from some crystal organza and when I started to put the pearl in the centre I realised it reminded me a bit of a 'Scabious' or to give it it's other name a 'Pin Cushion Flower' which considering it is a piece of sewing is rather apt don't you think.
"Vieux Berry" book... - This... ...is the mess that is my desk today. Loads of pages drying after being glued... ...and when they're dry there'll be more glueing going on again...
