Daisies

There is a drawer in my studio that I call the "ripening drawer". Many of my finished embroideries have spent time in there, some less, some more, some have been there for years, waiting patiently to ripen and be assembled, finished into boxes or pillows or whatever the case may be.


These two dimensional daisy embroideries have waited for more than their fair share of time, too, packed together in that same drawer. Oh, not because I am a procrastinator when it comes to assembling my embroideries, no, no, they just needed some time to ripen... LOL



Anyway, their time finally came and now they are finished into a wooden box topper and a pillow. I painted the box and was planning to antique and ornate it a little bit, but gave up on that idea and kept it simple and delicate. Now I need to add something else to the ripening drawer because I have more of these wooden boxes and I am sure that both crazy quilting and stumpwork would look great on them. But that's a story for another day...


Happy creating, Everyone!
