Sunflowers and Joy

This past couple of days has been all about cleaning, cleaning, and cleaning!  I think my family is in shock that so much was done in such a short period of time.  The plan is that if I don't have so much to clean then I will have more time to sew and spin.   Now they just need to jump on board and help me keep it this way.

Today, I found time to sit back down to work on the sunflower. My lighting is not as great as it was at the workshop.  My husband has been talking about installing better lighting in the basement for me.  I have a washroom to fix so upgrading lights may be pushed aside for a while. With a few task lights set up around my machine I think I was able to achieve what I was hoping for.  What do you think?

How should I finish this?  Some of the thoughts that I have are:
a) do a variety of other flowers to make a small wall hanging
b) a journal cover
c) frame it as is

    1. Thanks Michelle. I sent the image to Kathy and she was very happy with how it turned out. She gave me some more tips for shading and blending the colours more so I am anxious to get started another one =D


I always love to hear what you think about what I am working on. Tell me about what you are working on or have been inspired to start (...or pull out to finish).
