A little Cloud

The lovely thing about the latest embroidery course, is trying new things and putting them together.  The first element of the next piece was this cloud.
This is silk paper that has been machine embroidered and then further embellished with a buttonhole border, buttonhole lace along the bottom, and lots of  bullion knots.

The second element was needle woven scrim,

and a vintage embroidery transfer on silk.

The final piece wouldn't be complete without rain drops.  This is silk paper with a shisha mirror.

Here it is, all complete.  A cloud, with it's life giving rain, to make the flowers grow.

Wow, I would never think to do something like that. I need directions for my hand work. Very neat.
