I found Ashrifa’s work via French General on Instagram and – like French General – took a particular shine to these amazing foofy thistles!

Oh these are lovely, aren’t they? Their textured nature and those accurate-yet-fluffy tiny details … it’s too, too much! Not only that, but the colours Ash (I hope I can call her Ash!) work so brilliantly together. It’s a thistle-y and fluffy swoonfest, pretty much!

Argh. Like a country wander marked out in thread, really.
