Inspiration on a plate

Who would have thought that the remains of a lazy lunch in the sunshine could provide such a rich source of inspiration?  A mezze dish of green beans and tomatoes left beautiful pools of oil on my plate - I just had to draw it......

..... and then turn it into stitch.

The colour palette was dictated by some wool that I was given for the Embroiderers' Guild regional Chairman's challenge.  The result is a contemporary crewel work design which will form part of a patchwork of squares submitted by Skipton Embroiderers' Guild.
