Crafting keeps the madness at bay. Or is it the cause?

Willing to personal swap for art of my doggies!

I made this for a recent swap, based on something I saw in my partner's Pinterest board.

The flowers are made from circles of organza, with burnt edges to curl them a bit.  They have beaded centres.  The background fabric is unbleached cotton, that was tea dyed to represent the ground, and the leaves and stems embroidered on.

I like how dimensional the flowers are.

I wrapped the hoop in black ribbon to give it a finished look, and backed it with a floral fabric.  I die cut and stamped a fabric tag to go with it.

I posted it on my blog recently too
