Heaven in a Wild Flower

To see a World in a Grain of Sand
And a Heaven in a Wild Flower,
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand
And Eternity in an hour.

~ William Blake

I recently took a fabric painting class taught by my friend Janet Gibbins. Inspired by the season and the wildflowers I made a couple of sample pieces using Stuart Gill textile paints and machine embroidery. Not sure what I’ll do with them yet………………….
