I am fascinated by the passion flower, with its intricate and sculptural structure. It reminds me of the exotic three-dimensional sculptured forms of 17th Century needlework, and cries out to be created in stitch.

This wholly three-dimensional and life-size flower uses my preferred mixture of historically-inspired stitches from the 17th Century, together with more contemporary inventions of my own.
