I finished this up yesterday. It was inspired by Kristin's sunflower pictures and was rendered with the help of Kristin's book. Thank you times two!
I had a hard time getting a decent picture. The colors are a little off here. It was truly a work of using what you have on hand. The fabric is from an old skirt of mine and the crewel embroidery wool is some I have had forever. I'm not wholly pleased with it, but not totally dissatisfied either, given my limited supplies and expertise. I had trouble with the points of the petals, but I expect that that's due to inexperience. I did love all the chain stitching in the center.
Thanks, Kristin for the inspiration and help!
