Page from the sketchbook with little summer leafkeeper (about 2.5″ x 7″).  All those silk trees are needle-turned.  Slightly too fiddly, even for me!

I’m about to start a second week of antibiotics for the monster ear infection, which is much better than the indescribable horror of last week but still not completely cured.  So, another quiet few days beckons!

    How do you get the drawing and finished article to look so similar… I'm jealous, I'm lucky to work from a scribble myself, Get well soon.

    so interesting to see the same in paint and fabric – the painting has a lovely light, but the depth the cloth brings to it is just so exciting.

    Hi Fiona – thanks for coming, good to see you here. The photo doesn't do the fabric one justice – the texture of the silk tree on cotton background is much nicer than it looks here!@home – just a lucky accident I found very similar-coloured fabrics to the paintings. Thanks, Deborah.

    Fiddly they may be but beautiful nevertheless. Hope this course of antibiotics works for you.

    The cloth piece resembles your sketch so perfectly…as if it jumped off the page! Lovely!

    i love seeing the little sketch manifest in cloth. it's inspiring because it makes me realize i don't need to embark on something huge, i can actually start with something small and see where it takes me…but i might not going there on the needle turning. 🙂
