I spent another enjoyable hour being entertained and wowed by Amy Bunger with her “Fancy Flowers” instructional DVD. Using a wacky vase canvas from Melissa Shirley, she demonstrates all sorts of techniques that can be used for flowers on any canvas.
My favorites included Packed Fly Stitches, Detached Buttonhole over found objects, Stacked Beads and the Turkey Work chapter. I finally got “Jump through the loop” turkey work! Some of us need to be shown how to do things….
So as winter goes on past the holidays, start thinking about and stitching cheerful spring flowers. All of Amy’s DVD’s are available on our website.
