Down in the Garden


I have been working on this piece only for the last couple of hours off and on so that I can take it with me when I meet my friend, Jan, for lunch. It is for her birthday. She, like myself, loves gardening and is an excellent quilter of some 40 plus years. I have left it without binding etc. so that she can incorporate it into her quilting somehow. As she doesn't have an embellisher I know that she will enjoy something different to work with.
I made this on the embellisher using printed silk with roses, lace, organza, organza ribbon, dyed mohair (from our goats) and silk tops. It measures 8" x 12". I would have loved to spend more time on this with beads etc. but so hum! no more time!

Have a great weekend everyone!
