Felted Flowers


The Wildflowers in Winter theme for this week is art, but I seem to still be stuck in wildflower stitchery. The stitched wildflower pieces I'm posting today are from my sister's collection. They are some that our mother designed and stitched. I apologize that the pictures aren't the best. They were hanging on my sister's wall in her dining room and the lighting was somewhat dark in that corner. The green color in these pictures vary, but were in actuality all the same.

The Lady Slipper orchid, the Shooting Stars, and the Dutchman's Breeches were all favorite flowers of our mother. I think she favored asymetrical shapes and flowers that hung or dangled from their stems.

I hope you enjoyed the wildflower stitchery. I plan on getting to wildflower art soon, but am afraid I may be stuck on a few more stitchery posts yet! I hope Elizabeth Joy doesn't mind, as I'm sure enjoying the Wildflowers in Winter themes on Wildflower Morning!


I hope you are having an enjoyable week-end!

  2. Those are just lovely!

    And don't worry, post all the stitched wildflowers you wish. Wildflower art doesn't start until Wednesday, but I wouldn't mind if you kept posting stitched wildflowers for a long time. I really like seeing them.

  3. Its all art and boy these are pretty. I need to learn that edge stitch. I have been having troubles duplicating that on a piece I am working on right now. I don't know what is causing me not to be able to do it! Go figure.

  7. These took my breath away. They're lovely. I think the felt and the colors give them a kind of softness in color that does not come with cotton applique. Thanks for posting these!

  9. Oh, I like these! Are they individual pieces or are they all stitched to one background? I'd definitely call these "art" as well as stitchery.
