Until I read the full directions for the project I just thought it was a simple crochet sunflower. Even before painting, you are fully aware that the finished project is a sunflower. After painting, it takes n a whole new life. This is a two-fold project for those that like to crochet and paint.

I have to admit this is a unique technique. However being a person with poor painting skills, for me just using the colors of the sunflower to make the project would probably work best for me. This is a truly unusual design.

I went through an owl phase with my home decorations, and gave up sunflowers for the kitchen long ago, but this project is just about enough to tempt me back again. Then I read how long it takes. Yikes! If you dont want to paint (who has a goose feather these days?), you could just work the various parts in colored cotton yarn. Youll still need to stiffen it, but instead of sugar, I would recommend an actual fabric stiffener.
