There is a fairy in the rudbeckia garden. She has sparkling hair and sparkling clothes. Of course, everything she touches sparkles afterward.

I worked on this embroidery piece over the course of a few years and just finished it. The felt appliqués were stitched unto corduroy fabric (retrieved from old pants). I chose to take the pictures in full sun as it enhances beautifully the metallic thread and the embroidery floss. The sun also increases the dimensional effect created by the ribs of the corduroy fabric.

  1. I love the combination of the corduroy and the wool applique – so much lovely texture even before you started with the beautiful stitching and beads.

    • Yes, there is a lot of texture in this piece. 🙂 It was a little hard to hand stitch through corduroy, though. But as I like the combination with the appliqués, like you do, I persevered. I’m really happy to read that you like it!
