Started with a blank canvas of linen, layered with cotton batting.
Then, I had a rummage through my vintage fabrics, and found these sad, tattered little flowers.
I appliqued some leaves from an old tablecloth to the linen background and added the flowers. It still needed something. A dragonfly? Using one of last week's photos for inspiration, I stitched this...
If there is any interest in a how-to for the flower stitch, I will do a tutorial. Easy-peasy.
