Flowers From The Heart Pillow...


I have hand pieced the Tulip and Lily of the Valley blooms with 100% wool fabric.  The leaves have been cut from hand dyed wool.  The green wool has some subtle mottling.  I like to use mottled wool both in wool applique and rug hooking because it gives a nice variation or depth to the work.




The blush pink heart has been embellished with a vine of flowers made from glass beads and crystals.  I hand embroidered the leaves onto the vine.




The Lily of the Valley blooms were pieced and then hand embroidered. 
The pillow edge is trimmed using a Glass Beaded Blanket Stitch 
in shades of pink and pale butter.




This pillow measures 16in. x 16in. (40.64cm x 40.64cm)
Definitely one of my favorite pieces...
