Artichoke in Bloom

I created a pre-felt texture with the colors of the leaves at maturity, shades of green and purple in merino wool.  Then I cut out the leaves and stitched around each one so that I could cup them before stitching them onto the matching felted shape of the artichoke. The Blossom was felted with pink merino and eyelash fuchsia yarn. I  stitched on glass beads on the tips of each leave to represent the thistle points.
