More power to the flower

Before I start rambling I have remembered to say a big thank you to everyone who leaves a comment on here. I can't reply to a lot of them that come to me via my 'social' inbox, I don't know why I can't reply, but please be assured that each one means a lot to me and I am really grateful to know that people actually read this blog!


So this has been on here numerous times....

 as has this.
 and this in the last post.
 But I just wanted to show the collection of 6 pieces I sent to The Gallery at the Wharf in Burscough on Sunday.
The one below is inspired by a photo of a pulsatilla I saw on Facebook . Its the most figurative thing I've done but I got the number of petals wrong so its not true to life!




This one I've called 'Clematis' as thats the nearest thing I can think of. It just came out of my head ..(and there's enough wool in there to make another as my dad used to say in relation to wood)

 I like the rich blue backgtound on this and who says 'blue and green should never be seen'?)



 And finally a more typical piece which I've named after the Blue Poppy in the last post. 



 You learn something with every piece you do and I found I love the teal thread on the limey lemon in the picture below.


So there we are. Flower Power on now until the end of August at The Gallery at the Wharf Burscough.

Love the blue piece, and I defiantly love blue and green together! My Mum used to quote that, and I never understood why not!

It's a strange saying that one, in nature blue and green is every where, if your lucky and can look at a blue sky through the leaves on a tree! Gosh hark at me getting all arty it's looking at your beautiful flowers Jackie! Hope your exhibition is a great success x

It is strange how some things resonate with one's own sensibility.
When I look to these works of you I get tears in my eyes, I find them beyond beautiful.

All pieces are really beautiful. Thanks for sharing this valuable post. Being a Textile designer I appreciated the good textile work and learn more about new design and patterns.

Oh how I'd love to see the exhibition "in the flesh"! Every one of the pieces look lovely. There'll be a confetti of red stickers within minutes, I'll bet! Good luck

These are all absolutely gorgeous, especially the piece with the blue and green. I love the surprise of all the tiny stitches when you enlarge the pics.

I have looked (several times!) at each of these pieces trying to pick a favourite and finally came to the conclusion that I can't. I like them all!! As for the reference to blue and green not being seen together - bah...obviously the author of that was either colour blind or hadn't paid any attention to the blue sky and green grass.

Emma said...

What a wonderful group of pieces, lovely appreciation of color going on, each one a different feel. I don't believe in 'wrong' the Pulsatilla (sp?)has a fine balance.

love them all but the blue one best, excellent stitching,
