The following 3 textile pieces are painted onto cotton lawn material which will have a stabilizer attached before being free motion stitched. The loose look of the lilacs delights me as it is more watercolour like than most of the textile pieces I have made so far. Hmm, how to apply that technique to other pieces???
|Spring lilacs. Perhaps only the leaves and a very few blooms will need stitched details.|
|Okay, I know these look like yellow blobs but I am convinced I can stitch the shape of a daffodil onto them.|
|Wild turkeys. Where we were bird watching two different children came up over the period of an hour we were there glasses for more 'exotic' birds. Both greeted the turkeys with "Hi turkey" as if they knew them. How delightful.|
|Broadbilled hummingbird. The cage around the feeder gave the birds somewhere to perch after drinking.|
