Soul Food (part 5)


Today I like to show you two large blocks. The first one is called roots. Roots stands for all the learning experiences we have in life. It is written in woollen felt stitched onto the cloth with a buttonhole stitch.

Above the roots grows a flower, the visible part of all the experiences.


Detailed picture, so you can see two kinds of woollen felt, one bought in the shop and one felted by me. The stitches used are stem stitch, running stitch, bullionstitch and buttonhole stitch.

That's all for today. I'm off stitching some more. Have a creative day!!!

Oh, I love this one...it takes roots to begin growing. We do begin to grow when we have learned and then the flower blooms...so BEAUTIFUL! ~Lisa ;-)
