along with the emerald allotment ... I think the sunflower allotment is probably my favourite
and what I like about this project and each of these little allotment pieces
is that you can turn them around and they still look "right" (if you know what I mean)
there is so much joy in selecting fabrics, threads and paints to use
I honestly think there is no greater pleasure ...
I've selected distressed papers, melted fabrics, bits of chiffon and metallic sheers
there is some machine stitching (nothing fancy) and some french knots which I love to stitch
the threads I chose were shades of sunflower
there is shimmering light from the chiffons and burnished gilding flakes
layers on layers equal interesting texture
every French knot is worth the time invested ...
the sunflower allotment is my sixth and final piece in this little series
but I enjoyed stitching these so I am sure I will make more in the months ahead and
they will feature in The Crow Show at The Arts Club from 31st October - 15th November 2015
tomorrow ... I will list the materials | requirements for the tutorial
Saturday ... the tutorial
