Embroidered Picture, Sunflower

About this object

A round raffia table mat has been embroidered in wool to look like a sunflower. Gold coloured wool is used for tassels around the edge to depict the outer flowers. Black wool is used for the seed head which is speckled with green wool. The inner section of the flower is shown using gold, black, and green wool with a pale turquoise thread. A floral material has been stitched onto the reverse of the picture with twine and a plastic hook to hang it on.
