Flowers and Leaves



I've made a lot of progress on this this week. I even learned how to make bullion roses. For a novice, I think they came out pretty well. Now I'm down to the big flowers and leaves. Since I'm working on this every day now, I hope to finish them by the end of the week, so I can send it to evaluation at the beginning of the month.
I think some of it would translate better to silk, especially the smaller flowers. Maybe next project I'll mix fibers.

OMG this is amazing!! I love the purple flowers. Good luck on getting it done on time - you can do it! I'm trying to get my More Options in Hardanger done on time.

Thank you! And I know your Options will not only be done in time, it'll be stunning cause I got to see it in person.

Wahoo Meg! Your project is looking great. Superb bullion roses. I've only done them in Brazilian embroidery; it will be a challenge to do them in wool.
