Stars in the mud

Today has been wet, with leaden skies. But I have been cheering my self by working on a stitch picture of snowdrops.

It is amazing how they stay bright even in the mud, shining like stars  on a grey day.

    Technical details for Roz- background of painted bondaweb on old cotton sheet, overlaid with thin wool rovings, bits and pieces of thread and fabric to create texture and then free machined. Snowdrops cut from some white sari silk offcuts, but turned out a bit too translucent… Leaf slivers also cut from sari silk bits.
