I love the olive trees in the Languedoc landscape and as the summer sun is sizzling all the grasses, and the wheat fields are ripening the landscape is turning into a myriad of subtle yellowish/terracotta colours. The grey of the olive leaves creating contrast and the gnarled old trunks of the trees whispering of other times- this is a land rich in history. I am thinking of making a big olive tree quilt and thought I would stitch this little one to trial some colours - and it is an imagined olive tree.
I stitched with the Aurifil Lano thread onto khadi cloth . The piece measures 14 inches by 14 inches ( 35 cm square) and is for sale for 100 Euros inclusive of postage.
