Hard to capture…

The clematis in the garden have been beautiful this month. Some as big as dinner plates, with subtly different shading and furry centres. 1-128___05I decided to make it my stitch journal flower for May, but it was hard to capture the vibrancy and colour of the real thing. But the process of paying attention and observing these opening blooms, and then learning how to select fabrics, threads, techniques and colours to represent them, is what I wanted the stitch journal to be about. So the end result is secondary, and I am enjoying the journey.
