Poppy and Lily update

Well, I am done the Orange Day Lily Buds. They are embroidered, beaded, colored, quilted and couched.

Yarn was couched along the binding. I do like the look and am pretty happy with it.

The Poppy, is still in the works - I have some more thoughts on that, and will put it down and think about it.
None of the flower heads are sewn down yet, so are kind of flopping around, but I think you get the idea.

Beaded flowers

This week, I finished beading the flowers. It took a bit of time, but I like the outcome. Next is to add the little green ends and then quilt this little piece. I plan on putting a binding on it too.

You can see more great work at Off The Wall Fridays!

Off The Wall Friday

So this week I have another new piece. This one is the center or smaller quilt piece that will go onto another background when assembled.

I took some photos of some daylily buds last summer and just liked the way they looked. Then decided that it wasn't too interesting to many, so thought an interesting composition would be in order. I will be beading this when it is appliqued onto the black, then putting a binding on it - at least that is the plan, but you never know, plans do change :)

Hop on over to Off The Wall Friday for more!

This one is it!

After lots of fiddling around with different ideas, that I tried, I think thisway worked and I am finally pleased with it.

So now it is on to making the second smaller center and doing more stitching, etc. I see with this picture that my buds are all the same height, so that will change.

I like taking photos of my work and then be able to evaluate them from the camera's eye instead of my own, which is partial and works up really close.
