Flowers simply brighten up my day. I find them fun to stitch and make up new varieties based on real flowers from my garden.
With this shade I wanted to produce something entirely stitched, wit no appliqué and not one a drum shade. I love old lampshade frames, the different shapes that are created so I covered a a frame in my favourite fancy cream linen and used lots of threads, cotton, linen, silk, pearls cotton and yarn to create big blooms of pink loveliness.
Using chain stitch for the flowers with french knot pollen I have had fun making a new hybrid of flower and using thread again 'painted' with long stitch leaves in a myriad of colours and let my imagination take over.
The shade has not been lined so you can see all the glorious workings inside and it lets even more light shine through.
