Inspirations Calendar | February Project
29th January 2021
While none of us can know for sure what 2021 has in store, what we do know is that regardless of whether the trees outside are covered in snow, parched beneath the summer sun or somewhere in between, during the month of February, Julie Kniedl’s gorgeous three-dimensional Camellia will always be blooming in full glory.
Camellia was one of the stunning projects from her book Botanica which featured the full range of Julie’s unique designs. The scarlet petals of this particular flower are just the first feature which will catch your eye.
When you recognise the precise detail in the tangle of centre stamens, the perfectly rounded bud and the beautifully shaped leaves, you’ll be wanting to start the project in no time.
Worked in crewel wools, like all of Julie’s designs, the project Camellia is so realistic anyone admiring the finished piece will think it’s just been plucked off a bush. Whether you wear your finished project as a brooch, or carefully sit it in a tiny crystal vase, Camellia will make you think of growth and abundance whatever season is happening outside.
