Wild flower meadow

I wanted to capture the effect of wild flowers in a field against a blue sky (like in this photo of a Danish scene) in an abstract way.

 

Cornflowers are my favourite of all flowers so they had to feature heavily. I am still in awe of my mum who managed to source a huge bucketful so far out of season, in early May, for my wedding bouquet.

After some complex felting and hours and hours of stitching, here’s what I came up with.

I especially like the effect of different shades of green in the felted wool/silk background and the naturally balmy sky!
