Desert Wild Flowers, 8 by 8's
My photographer had these pictures ready and I was able to pick them up last week. I had mentioned them briefly in October before I had them all photographed.
I used the photographs, printed on a heavy fabric, as background for the embroidered flowers. Many of these wild flowers are so very small they are hard to see clearly, so I enlarged them when doing the embroidery. Then I placed (appliqued) them onto their original background photographed fabric.
Since finishing these I have completed my black and white series and will add those pictures as soon as I am able to pick them up from my photographer.
The 8 Black and White group brings the total to 51, 8 by 8's, finished. Not many to go but I tend to slow down during our holiday season.
Happy holidays, everyone.......
Here's to a creative and fulfilled New Year!
