Spiderwort

a new design i finished last month– the three-petaled spiderwort.  the unique, triangle-shaped blossoms caught my attention some years ago as they grow in a patch nearby in the neighborhood around this time of the year.  i had long wondered what it was, but it wasn’t until i decided to embroider it this year that i finally looked it up.  i’ve only seen them in violet, so that’s what i chose for the first version, but as i found that they come in red-violet and white also, i’m working on a color variation.

こちらは先月完成した新作。ムラサキツユクサのデザインです。毎年この時期に近所の道ばたに咲いていて、三枚の花びらを持つ三角形の花が特徴。何だろう?と思いながらいつも眺めていました。

今年はこれを刺繍してみようと思い調べてみると、「ツユクサ」と名前に付いていて、どこか雰囲気が似ているけれど、普通のつゆ草とは属が違う別の植物なのだそう。紫の他にも赤紫や白があると知り、早速v.2を刺しています。

    I love this flower. You really are an inspiration for me. I’m almost done with a tea cozy. I’ll send a photo when completed

    Is the fabric you are using lined before you embroidered the pieces? You are able to get the fabric so tight on the frame
