It has been another month, and I just cannot find the time to get back to this project. I did do a little on it, but not much. The lure of warmer days and digging in the dirt is too strong right now, LOL! But a rainy day on Friday kept me inside, and I spent the day happily sewing. I have a new quilt design that is going from inside my head to actual fabric, and I am really liking it! It is an insanely simple idea, and I’ll show it to you soon. After a day of piecing, I picked up the art project and put some more embellishments on it.
I am done with the silk flowers, they are just a bit of a pain to do through such a large piece. I added some yellow tulips, and a bunch of green leaves to fill in. Four daisies got gold seed bead centers.
A few more buttons and pearls were added to the top of the swirl to create a point.
It will sweep down and to the left, then lower and wider to the right, like a shower of buttons and beads. It is a bit hard to see right now, but will become more prominent as I fill in more buttons and embellishments.
How about you, can you do handwork when the garden is calling?
