The elements - Earth

Fire is finished. I have been working on "earth". Here are some phone photos of the quilting I worked on yesterday. Intense quilting, but it makes such a difference.

Here I am stitching on some bulbs. Amazing, to me, that a few lines of stitching takes them from flat and, well, ugly, to a real approximation of a dimensional bulb.

Bulbs, roots, leaves and grass done. Now I am working on layers of soil and little rocks.

What kind of bulbs? Agapanthus.
