Wool Appliqued Foxglove...

Hand Dyed Wool Foxglove Flowers

I love the old fashioned cottage gardens of Delphinium, 
Foxglove and Snap Dragons.




Last Spring, some of my Foxglove reached an amazing 6 ft. tall.  This entire 'stand' of Foxglove was "self sown" from the previous years plants.  



The Hummingbirds love the bright colors.




I have chosen some pink and coral shades of wool for these Foxglove flowers.  Can you see the curvy stems that I have marked ?
By marking the stems ahead of time, 
it allows me to know where to place my flowers. 

More to come as this project takes shape...

  2. Looking good! The heirloom cottage flowers are the best! I've tried so many hybrids, but the foxgloves, hollyhocks, delphiniums and coneflowers are always the prettiest! Oh... and mix some Queen Anne's Lace in there too! :-)
