Daffodils

 9th April 2021

This has been inspired by a textile artist I have followed for a long time, Emma Wigginton, who has been providing free workshops on U-Tube during lockdown.

Strips of a variety of fabrics in shades of green, mostly hand dyed layered on a cotton wadding backing....


....embellished then free machined...


...stems and leaves machined in place...


...then daffodils, I intended taking more photos of the stages but got carried away and forgot!!


I really like the textures and have used some of my turmeric dyed silk for the centres. I didn't stitch all the petals as I wanted the texture.

Thank you Emma for the ideas, will definitely use this idea for backgrounds, think I might make tulips next, watch this space!
