It feels a little funny to work on this fall themed piece when we're having unseasonably hot weather in in California, but over the weekend I added this embroidery to the Madonna. You'll notice that the two sunflowers on top are darker than the one on the bottom. I have gel pens and I'll use them. Actually, I'm trying to see if I can use up the silk ribbon I have and not buy more, but I think I'm going to have to bite the bullet and get some more ribbon for this piece. I don't mind buying it, but I have to order it on line, since none of the stores around here carry it.
I need a couple of more orange roses for this piece, and when she's appliqued to the background, I'll fill in with beads. I'm very proud of my corn, but the ones on the bottom need fatter kernels.
Next, I'll work on a fabric collage on a very special background. That will probably wait until after I shake this flu. Yes, I have the flu. Again.
