Of necessity this will be a post short on words and as the saying goes
'a picture says a thousand words'
yes, a real bad case of tendonitis, the worst I have ever had!
Due to my deciding that I didn't want tulips in the centre of my
AHIQ String Tulip QAL I hunted for favourite fabrics and decided on
Poppy Garden by
Philip Jacobs, a snippet below
as you can see the frilled edges of the poppies are so pretty and
after deciding I should like a central collage within my string squares
I had a moment of inspiration, why not carefully cut
around a few individual flowers for the collage. Out came my very
special tiny, sharp scissors and I began and rather overestimated how
long cutting into those frills would take, the result you can see in the first
photo of this post!
Here is the posy before ironing and fusing down using Misty Fuse.
Just as I had envisaged - a posy of poppies
set into the surrounding string squares although the purple
colour is slightly off in the photo
many emails during that time, she battled for the past few years with many health challenges
under the bench was enjoying the view.
