Are you planning on "planting" this piece?
The stitching and seeds are beautiful. What is the fabric??

This piece is ethereal and wonderful, Kimmie. I love the smell and color of marigolds and enjoy sprinkling those colorful petals on my salads. (sigh!) Now I'm yearning for spring -- you've given me hope with this lovely creation. Hugs, Terri xoxox
