Little Cartwheels

[wpg]

I added bits of yellow felt and some machine stitching using couched threads to the base fabric first then stitched some little cartwheel stitches in different shades of stranded cottons as well as some fly stitching, and a bit of feather stitch. I like the way they overlap and the colours merge into each other a little bit. I was going to do some larger dandelion clock shapes but I’m not sure now. I might abandon that idea and just carry on with the cartwheels. They are very addictive! They remind me of coral colonies or something similar.

Update

This work has now been finished with a bird. You can see the result here.

Hey, I'm a textile artist based in the UK. I like playing around with fabric paint, stitching both hand and machine embroidery and I have far too many sequins. I'm inspired by nature, its mysteries, subtleties, delights and complexities. The outer natural world has its counterpart in the inner spiritual world and I am also inspired by folklore, poetry, fairytales, stories of long ago when the spirits of nature seemed less shy than they do today, as well as my own shamanic journeys into the dreamland.
