Rose Applique - 6" x 6"
I finished the practice applique piece last night. I haven't done this for awhile, and I felt I needed to practice before Sandra Leichner's workshop next week. I have never really worked with embroidery, so I am tickled at the stamens - the details make the piece more interesting - don't cha think?
I like the way the deconstructed fabrics adds interest to the background without taking away the emphasis on the flower. Of course, I started with the background, which forced me to really use punchy colors for the flowers. Elin Noble once told me that even a dot on a piece of paper "effects" what you do next. Isn't that like life, there are no mistakes, you just have to make the best of what you've got.
