Pattern i104, AUTUMN FLOWERS by Ana Mallah for Inspiration Studios, Featuring Stumpwork Embroidery
Glorious stumpwork garland celebrating stunning autumn leaves.
Inspirations Studios describe this project:
"Freshly picked apples and pears, sunny days followed by cool nights and spectacular sunsets are just some of the delights that autumn brings but its best-loved gift is the stunning transition of deciduous trees.
From the fresh green of summer, leaves slowly warm to gentle yellows, burnt orange and rich reds, clothing trees in a glorious array of stunning colours.
Celebrate the season with this striking embroidered study, capturing the transient shades with silk and cotton threads on a natural background.
Each stem is worked as a three-dimensional piece and could easily be adapted to be worn as a beautiful pin or placed in a small vase."
