Spring Flowers

For the 'Spring Flowers' theme this week on
I did a little textile piece

'Daffodil and Snowdrops'


I started with a needle felted background on denim and machine stitched some
Oliver Twist short length yarns on top and couched on some dark green chenille.


Next I added little daffodil head from this great tutorial over at crafty Staci except
 I made it a quarter of the size.
 I used printed yellow fabric for the petals, satin edged rayon ribbon for the flower centre,


 pearly seed beads for snowdrop petals, I hand stitched their dark stalks
 and added some tiny seed beads into the ground area.
I then hand stitched the whole piece onto some layered fabric and organza and frayed the edges,


backed it with card and added a selection of hand dyed yarns and a white ribbon for the tie.

Tag: Card Backing, Fabric & crystal organza, denim & needle felted wool
Embellishment:  Yarns, Fabric flower and beads.
Tie: Ribbon & yarns

I'm quite excited about spring :) the sign of things to come, looking forward to the warmer weather and spending more time out in the garden, already there is more sun shining into my little studio each day filling it with light and warmth.
I was delighted when my husband Kevin told me last week
that he was making me little window boxes for my little studio

He asked me what kind of flowers I would like to have planted in them.
I decided as they are such tiny cute little boxes that it would have to be violas, pansies.

The boxes are finished and fixed under the windows awaiting their little occupants who are,
 at the moment in the propagator growing :)

Thanks for stopping by :)

That's a gorgeous little tag. Your studio is looking good - you will love the little window boxes when they are a real splash of colour.
