Today I have been playing around with the rosebud shape from my bud photos.  This stitched panel was supposed to be for a lampshade but I think it might also look good framed to hang on the wall.  What do you think?

I love the way the design changes with light passing through, especially the needle holes and, of course, all those lovely plant fibres in the paper which is why I like working with it so much.

The shapes are making me think of little people with arms waving – the one above rather like mother and child; not what I had intended at all.
