Good morning...hope you all had a wonderful Easter. At times like this I wish I were back in England for my 4 day weekend....it is a bank holiday over there and we get Friday and Monday off...and some people even the Tuesday too :-)
Still working on the foxgloves. I have almost all the flowers made and ready to be attached now. Sometimes I need a break from the repetitiveness so I have also started on the bottom buds that you can see in these photos of REAL life foxgloves.
You can see in the top photo how the stamen sticks out and separates into 2 at the very end. Hmmm......can't seem to manage that with the cotton thread that I am using. Still, it is so small I don't think you'd even see the split.
I am also still working on the leaves... I just can't seem to get those how I want them...but I will. I think I've tried every kind of paper known to man...or at least known to me and nothing gives me the right effect. I will persevere.
