A crochet painting

Posted on

Here’s a little mixed media crochet flower ‘painting’ Ive been working on.  crochet flower picture

It’s made using the same basic flower found here, but the leaves and stalks are each sewn with a single long stitch… and there are two or three seed beads stitched into each flower center.

Tonight I made this chocolate sauce to accompany banana splits for dessert, Carter may have mentioned (twice) as he was scoffing it that I was the best Mum in the world! ♥ Janette xx

    Very pretty. I used to making greeting cards the same way a few years back. I found it very relaxing

    I love it. When I was growing up there were so many craft and color “rules” Mixed media adds such lovely warm dimensions. Your work is spectacular.
