New work

Here is my latest textile collage entitled
'flowers' ~ spent ages thinking that title up!!! Anyway, I really enjoyed making this. I never work to a sketch/plan with these pieces, I just start with an image, such as the one above 'Joan's Flower Shop', which was from a vintage envelope and then away I go, adding and taking, sewing and embroidering. It's all about placement. I backed it with a lovely piece of linen which has an embroidery transfer ironed on, a Budgie! Well why not!
