Sunflowers are very well known in Holland, i.e. "Van Gogh" . My best friend had one growing in her garden, took a photo & some leaves..made a stencil from the leaves..the center of the flower is embroidered huge French Knots,  the wheat in the back ground..pattern from my machine. The green & red flowers ..the center..hand embroidered...I chose these green & red flowers...because next to my house..I saw the wheat, & some red flowers growing around the sunflowers.  Also, the hanging loops, I embroidered tiny sunflowers.

I love sunflowers too!  You did a lovely job.  I wish I could see it in person as I would love to examine the stitching up close.  I'm sure all of your handwork gives it great texture and dimension. Thanks for sharing it with us! Kim
