Petals/Inspire Me Thursday
Petals! What lovely fragile parts of a flower. When I think of petals I see them falling softly to the ground after the bloom has gone. I think of rose petals on the bed(from television not my own life too much cleanup). I think of their lovely scent and how fragile and quickly time flies and they are gone replaced hopefully by different blooms and different petals.
My friend Mendofleur had a beautiful petal jacket on her blog a while ago(a truly great submission for Inspire Me Thursday, so you can find it at http://mendofleur.com/2009/04/14/petal-jacket/ for yourself if she doesn't share it). It captures the petal just perfectly and is a real work of art so please go and see it. I love it and I know you will too. It reminds me once again how we are all a part of a whole and connected and yet we are petals that have fallen off the flower and have blown away. Her work is lovely.
As for my own petals, this is my handful of flowers. It is one of my favorite hand embroidered hands and does fit the topic. I am just about finished with my current piece flamethrower and will share it soon! Happy Stitching! May your petals blow in the sunshine and a cool breeze.
