|My Sweet Prairie, 6x6 work in progress for the December show|
I no longer own my felting machine. I simply machine stitched the green felt bits down, and then covered the whole thing with hand embroidery. What is with my camera!? The flowers are purple in real life. I took this photo at night with my Ott Light. I can see the grape colored purple, but my camera cannot.

There are seed stitches, French Knots, and straight stitches all done with silk threads / yarns. I like this piece so much, that I'm inspired to make three more 6x6" pieces so that there will be one for each season.
Winter will be easy...
|haha - Joy sent me this last year after taking the postcards class. : )|
The seasons were all so, so long last year - summer & fall went on forever. Now we have snow very early - four days of it! The weather is very mild, and I still enjoyed my morning coffee outside. My kids enjoyed the back yard at 7 am! lol
Have a good day. I'm linking up to The Needle & Thread Network. Cheers!
