Flower Garden

   13" x 20"
I'm generally a vegetable gardener, but that was simply too many letters!  I liked that "flower" had the same number of letters as "garden" so that each flower letter could grow out of a garden letter.  I pulled out various of my floral and leafy fabrics for the letters and put them against a couple brown earthy fabrics. I mount my pieces on foam core, with the fabric wrapped around to the back, actually stitching through the foam core (it's not hard, just use a thin needle!), and used pebble beads to avoid the dimples that otherwise form in the fabric, and regular beads in the upper part.

I'm just a bit later than usual this time!  Comments welcome.
