THE PRESIDENT - CLEMATIS

                                                                          It has been a while since I last posted but I have been busy creating and just to prove it here is a silk embellished picture of a clematis that used to climb throughout a quince at our last house. Sadly it is no longer there as the new owner has pulled up most of the garden for an extension!! So glad I have a reminder of this stunning clematis 'The President'. I've bought a new one for a trellis at our new house.

This closeup shows in more detail the texture I achieved with the embellisher and the finishing off on the sewing machine as well as the beaded centre.

A stunning piece of work. So nice to have such a lovely reminder of your clematis and I hope that your new one grows just as well for you in your new home. Sadly we lost our favourite clematis 'fireworks', which was a stunner! We think it just out grew itself and then died down completely. We have a new one but I think it will be a year or two before it will be at its best.
