For October, I chose a plant that grows wild on the side of the road all over California. It’s called doveweed or mullein because the doves and wild turkeys like to eat the seeds from the plant. Yes, it’s technically a weed, but isn’t a wildflower just a pretty weed? I really love the way they look, almost like a succulent or lamb’s ear plant.
Here’s my embroidery take on the plant.
I kept it very simple with just some satin stitch leaves and French knot centers.
The French knots are a combo of two colors. I used one strand of the green and one strand of a yellow color.
