Quick hand stitch, on pale green bandage scrim over felt. The flowers are teased tufts of crewel wool.

"Harebells at Bosley Cloud, Cheshire. As folklore has it, witches used juices squeezed from the flowers to turn themselves into hares; the Victorians believed fairies slept in the bells.”

Flowers are an easy option, so I felt obliged not to be too realistic. And I wanted a bit of hand stitch to take on holiday, which cut down the options (though unexpectedly summery weather meant I didn’t actually touch it while away!).
So I chose to ignore the delicacy of the bells and went for quick and messy splashes of blue wool.
