I am without a doubt a huge fan of Mother Nature in all of her amazing glory, especially when it comes to flowers.
A week or so ago I met a friend at RHS Wisley. I am lucky enough to go there a few times a year. It is half way between our home and two of my very best friends', so it's the ideal place to meet for a wander and a coffee. Our kids also seem to enjoy it particularly watching the Koi Carp in the pond.
The displays in the flower borders this year were breath-taking - full of vibrant colour and beauty. These are just a few examples:
Who wouldn't be inspired by these fabulous blooms? I had been thinking of an idea for fabric wall art for a while and these lovely flowers were the final push I needed to get sewing.
My idea was to showcase a range of bright and bold felt and fabric flower techniques in the shape of a heart. In order to fit in a range of flowers I decided to go big - the canvas size is 50x50 which gave plenty of room to include lots of fun flowers in various colours shapes and sizes.
Next week I shall be adding a fabric flower tutorial post to the blog - come back and take a look!
