Since I 've been living in a mediterranean surrounding, I've got some nostalgic memories of the gardens in France.I love the iris a lot ! I first drew different samples,ironed them on "wonder under" fusible and cut them. I wanted to build a fabric basket with them, but I changed my mind when seeing them all together on my table. I decided to draw a landscape to incorporate them. I fused all scraps,added angelina fibers, tulle to shade some areas,thin and shining plastic for light effects in the water as well as the sky.Free motion stitching only. I embellished with beads and special ribbons..and added a thread butterfly, of course !
