June Flowers





        I've had a disaster with my camera, so these were taken with my phone - sorry for the bad quality! 




I was inspired by a baroque painting and the flowers in my garden.






I also ordered these lovely Delft cow creamers from vrminiatures which should go nicely in my alcove when I finish it!

I should have much more to post - as soon as my camera is mended

  1. Your flowers are lovely. Could you tell me what gauge of Piper silk you are using?? I love the cows.

    1. Hi Lucy,

      I use Piper's high gloss floss, and I use one strand. You can blend more than one colour at a time, but I find on the very small scalle the effect is lost.

      Hope this helps!

  6. I love your June flowers, fantastic work, Jonquil! The Delft creamers are gorgeous. I've been to Delft for a week ago: they look the same I saw there in real life!
