A beautiful appliqued picture for the flower lover! This piece is made from a combination of applique, and freemotion machine embroidery. I have made the background from various layered cottons and linens, and then appliqued and free motion embroidered the flowers and leaves.......effectively painting with your sewing machine. The background is totally unique...... no two pictures are the same. The flowers are mainly created from my grandmother’s antique crochet, which I have hand dyed and then carefully cut out. The overall palette is very pretty with pastel shades of green, pink and lilac. The text message is simple..... enjoy the simple things in life...... printed to calico and then stitched.
The finished piece measures 29 x29cm with the inner mount in antique white and measuring 15cm x 15cm. It comes ready framed with a white driftwood wooden frame, ready to hang on a wall. As this piece is created by freemotion embroidery and applique, the odd frayed edge is deliberate and adds to the quirkiness.
