I have been working on some dimensional embroidery flowers. I want to use a number of flowers for the Cabinet of Curiosities and these are the start of my garden.
The flowers are Mariposa or butterfly lilies. They grow wild in the foothills and desert areas of western states but are very hard to grow in a garden. They are one of my favorite flowers.
The white one is a Sego Lily
worked in AVAS and the pink one is a Trailing Mariposa that is stitched in Chinese silk.
I designed and stitched a group of three Sego Lilies and really like how it turned out.
