Little Cartwheels

Little Yellowhammer detail of hand stitching by artist Nicky Perryman

I added bits of yellow felt and some machine stitching using couched threads to the base fabric first then stitched some little cartwheel stitches in different shades of stranded cottons as well as some fly stitching, and a bit of feather stitch. I like the way they overlap and the colours merge into each other a little bit. I was going to do some larger dandelion clock shapes but I’m not sure now. I might abandon that idea and just carry on with the cartwheels. They are very addictive! They remind me of coral colonies or something similar.
