Gum Tree Blossom

I was at the Abbotsford Convent Maker's Market today, slightly hungover without deserving to be, when I looked down and found this pretty little gum tree blossom. I thought it so pretty that I wanted to recreate it with my felt and thread and make it into a brooch, and so I did.

I love the exotic looking plants and flowers and blossoms here in Australia, some are quite extraordinary looking.

Now I'm going to see Mama Mia with Christina so I'd better get on my bike and dash.

Ooh! I love it! Very Australian!

You'll enjoy mama mia, especially if you like musicals and abba!

This is really lovely Bridget. You have reproduced it really well and the colours are great together. I have an illustrated book of ink and pencil drawings of Oz nature and there are some wonderful and unique forms in your country.
