It all started with a white tea towel that acted as my blank canvas, one where anything is possible. Leave the white cloth alone and it will still be useful as a tea towel. (In my kitchen it wouldn't be clean for long, but still it would serve a purpose.) What happens next, when you place that towel in crafty hands, is a whole different story.
First came the black thread stitched outline of the flower layers. A bit of free-styling here. Next, picking out the colors of thread to get me to the next step. Then, onto the stitching. Each layer unique from the others. In the end, all of the layers come together, each one different, to create something that no longer resembles a plain, white tea towel.
The is the beauty of a blank canvas, anything is possible.
