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.
