Just before I fell asleep last night I had an idea for my flora piece. I really wasn't into that painted thing I did.
So down it came.
My new idea, which I'm really into at the moment because I can picture it exactly in my head, goes something like this...
20 little separately made images, which will be pieced together. I think I will have strips of sashing in vintagey feeling fabrics running horizontally across. Or maybe try and incorporate strips of printed paper from a book somewhere.
The first one is done. This is about 8 by 5 inches.
When the whole is complete there will be machine quilting which will add to the piece.
And maybe a bit of paint.
Or doily print.
And hand stitching.
I am so happy I have eventually got somewhere.
The best ideas always come to me in bed.
I keep a notebook and pen in my bedside drawer for such emergencies.
In case I wake up in the morning and all is forgotten.
