new work in progress...






















busily stitching away on a new piece (and new design)... a flower bulb, with stem, roots, and bloom

the bulb is nearly complete... next step is to finish stitching and filling the stem with wool, and then on to sewing and attaching the petals.  this takes a bit of time, as each stitch is completed by hand, with needle and thread, but i hope to have this one completed and ready for listing within the next few days

really enjoying working on this one.  the colors of the wool are so delicious, with a wonderfully soft texture (the brown wool of the bulb is from purl).  still deciding between an embroidered linen or a vintage floral cotton for the petals... ahhh, decisions ;)
