Embroidery Crocus, Inspired by the art in an abstract way from the first edition of "The Lady's Drawing Book and Compleat Florist" Printed in 1755 and contained twenty-six plates of flowers. "The Florist, or an Extensive and Curious Collection of Flowers for the Initiation of Young Ladies Either in Drawing Pictures or in Needle-point" Published 1759, featured sixty plates. By A. Heckle. How to draw Flower books followed including full-color drawings that could be copied, along with detailed instructions. "A New Treatise on flower Painting", or "Every Lady Her Own Drawing Master", 1816 by the famous George Brookshaw, author of Pomona Britannica.

Creamy, White material , heavy quality material with vivid embroidery in Turquoise, Pale and Dark Blue to Greens. Embroidered Boarder all the way round gives it a luxury finish. Over 55,500 stitches, signed LMD in the design.

Please state the Yellow Crocus or Purple Crocus when ordering.
Approximately 10"x7.5",

Note: Colours & material may vary slightly due to photograph quality it maybe a Lighter/darker/deeper shade than it appears on screen.

"The abstract embroidery has a life of its own. There are many layers involved, and I never know exactly what the end result will be. A truly unique creation through from the beginning of the design process, through to adding colour and removing colour, letting it merge into the material/fabric and even adding selected thread neon creates glazes with light and shade. Strokes and texture build up in and on the piece over the few hours it takes to complete each piece. This artistic process can be done exactly the same on two different cushion throws, and both will come out differently. They do have a life of their own. I work with artistic styles and the medium of machine embroidery. This process is definitely the most sensuous for me. The inspiration can come from many different places, photographs, paintings, objects and for instance, going to see a film. Part of the design packages I use have their own say in when a piece is finished. The stitching seems to be maxed out when the last thread layer is added! The piece darkens or lightens with the view point you have on it, as to what time of day and with varying light. It appears to move with the light and Shade. The stitches change from being sewn one way to another giving a unique contrasting life to the piece."
