These were three trees between me and the Pacific Ocean, a few blocks away. On a glorious red sunset, I knew exactly how to grow them in my forever garden repetoire. The fronds are of traditional and upholstery fabrics. The "dates" are various non-precious stones and beads. The vining that dangles is made of every hand embroidery stitch suitable. Only the background is machine pieced. All else is entirely handwork. Rug hooking canvas lines the inside, with the batting, adding support and longevity to the work. Private collection.
