After looking at some of Susan Brubaker Knapp's thread-painting, I thought I'd give it a try. I didn't want to take the time to hand paint my fabric, so I picked out a bold commercial sunflower print to play with. Here, I'm just finishing stitching the leaves. Next, I'm hoping to add seed beads to the center. I'm very pleased with the results so far, and keeping the project small means it will be done soon! A nice bright project for our cold gray winter.
