New embroidery- Meadow grasses.

 This is my first new piece of embroidery after a bit of a break. So it seems a bit disconnected at the moment.
 I did the meadow grasses first
 and then the meditational ripples of lines that are about the wind in those grasses.
Yesterday I put in the Meadow Brown butterfly that feeds on the grasses. They are 3 things that need bringing togther with colour or design. Who knows? Sometimes things have to be unpicked or they are abandoned. Just sent a few abandoned pieces to a textile up cycler in U.S.A. so will see if she can make something of them rather than lying neglected in a drawer. But I think this one is a puzzle I will fathom out. All my designs start like this - it's problem solving to fit the story. The story this time is how that wind through those meadow grasses made me feel peaceful, free and content. Sound corny? Perhaps it just is. Which is what I said of those wavy meditation lines.

  1. I actually love this. It's a smooth combination of abstract and realistic. I also love the wind in waves in the tall grasses.

  3. I am very fond of those meadow grasses, and then the wind ripples caught me! It will find its way and will come together, and I look forward to seeing where it goes.
