Do you know who Charles Rennie Mackintosh is? You should, so take a moment and go here to read up about him. Better yet, do an image search and see all his beautiful designs. You can find some here. I love his watercolors!
The embroidery below is based on Mackintosh’s watercolor of a “blackthorn” (bush?) branch. It looks lethal. I looked up blackthorn and see that it is traditionally used for walking sticks. Maybe the blooming walking stick in Enchanted April was a blackthorn. I’ll have to watch the movie again and find out. My rendition was free motion machine embroidered in black and then I used hand embroidery where Mackintosh used watercolor. Sure does make me think of spring!
Now, what to do with this piece of cloth???
