This does not represent the flower it started out as at all but it sort of works , I took the little petals I guess you would call them from a perennial aster I believe , not all that good at identifying flowers and I had to lay them out on the fabric and try to get them to hold still , well that wasn't happening and it was so...... hot out there that I just covered it and hoped for the best and this is what I got . I did some thread work on those petals and pretended the underside looked like that and then those leaves ,well they didn't pound all that perfect either but there was enough green there to make them look like leaves so I sketched in a stem and voila I created a flower ,almost looks like a thistle if you have a great imagination. I have the most fun when it really doesn't matter if it works , sometimes they turn out to be the best . I won't be sending this one out but thought I would share my little experience . I did get my cards ready though and had such fun with them , and no they are not flower pounded , I had enough heat for that day . Hope my partners like them , they will be in the mail shortly and land in your mailbox in the near future . I really want to thank everyone who signed up for this swap and I am so looking forward to seeing what each of you create .
I should also report my sewing for FNWF's hosted by none other than the talented Cheryll
This is what I was sewing last evening , my postcards , want to see them ?
Oh look at that someone turned them around on me , guess you will just have to wait until my partners receive them. Thanks so much for stopping by this very hot day and have a great day.
