Spiked!

Spiked!

How fun are these 3D spikey flowers? I created them using merino and tussah silk. The background for the piece is merino wool. Then I added Leicester Longwool locks, sari silk and lots of arm strength. I stitched the flowers to the background and stitched all of that to a piece of 100% Hunter Green wool.

When creating these pieces, I always appreciate the farmers and wool suppliers who provide me with such beautiful wool. Most of my Leicester Longwool Locks come from Iris Creek Farm. These locks make me smile each time I incorporate them into my work.
