Amber Waves of Grain

I've been thinking about this theme for 2 months and wheat always popped into my head when I thought about the word natural.  I guess the color?  The way it grows?

The piece was very time consuming even though it appears to be very simple.  It was also a little boring so I added some insects. 

I used beads to represent some of the grains. The pearlized beads were too white so I colored them with a Sharpie.

I stiched lots and lots of wheat shafts using a special stich on my machine.


  1. wonderful. Definitely natural.

  2. This is perfect for the theme. Very pretty. Love how wheat looks -but don't touch! :)
