Samples inspired by the design work.

Canvas work. Developed from the tissue paper design. Painted canvas overlaid with sheer fabric and couched threads. Simple canvas work stitches embellished with felt circles and buttons, needleweaving, french knots, bullions and detached chain.

On the right, one of the counted designs worked up using
small gauge canvas, crochet cotton for the background and
cotton perles for the details. (click on photo for bigger image)

Oh, I love these! The color choices are perfect and the design is so delicate. I can imagine the petals fluttering in the breeze. You really are very patient and skillful.
