A Fabric Art Daisy -Manuela's Work in Progress
Much of our art work is solitary, even when Manuela and I both work in the studio. I usually have to work in the studio but Manuela always has a project at hand and in some cases she carries a project around with her to work on. This daisy is a work in progress. The daisy and the leaf are painted on a hand dyed fabric then three dimensional machine embroidered petals are applied by hand. Manuela created the daisy's centre with French knots and Czechoslovakian glass crystals. Shading is achieved by hand embroidery and beaded accents. Manuela and her embellishments just go on and on.
