Foxglove Hanging - Finished!!

This has taken a little longer than anticipated - I hope you like the result!

The daisies have been stitched, in a cotton yarn, their petals being formed from woven bars. The daisy centers are bullion knots in yellow crochet cotton, their leaves are crocheted in a fine 2-ply yarn. Details have been added to the foxglove flowers and leaves. Blue chicory flowers have been stitched in a mixture of blue cottons and embroidery threads. The chicory leaves have been cut from a hand dyed felt and held, slightly twisted into relief, by stitching in lime green crochet cotton.

Tiny blue speedwell flowers were added at the base of the hanging.

The finished piece will shortly be listed for sale at Folksy.
