This week's quick creative experiment was inspired by my Hellebore bud.  Again a little watercolour sketch, a photograph and a stitched paper sample.

The tiny one was so fiddly to cut out that I stitched a larger one to see how it might work as part of a lampshade design.  As a stand-alone piece it hardly shouts 'Hellebore', but as most of my flower lampshades are very stylised I don't suppose that's too much of a problem.

In fact, turned this way it reminds me more of a fuchsia bloom.

Umm - it has potential methinks!
