Lavender and Lace

I am in a phase now where I'm experimenting and loving making flowers with silk ribbon. This one is of lavender and each little flower is handmade from hand-dyed laces. There is a lot of fiber that you can't see behind the flowers, just at the bottom: many fibers couched and needlefelted. The green bushes are also needlefelted of wool roving with some Angelina thrown in. The background cotton was also hand-dyed. Free motion quilting and a pretty purple with green edges ribbon frame completes it. Hope you like it as much as I do.
