And the flowers are blooming...

No, the knitting did not get started.   I picked up another project and am making good progress now on the Flower Initial.
As a lover of counted work I never find free style embroidery easy but this is coming along well.   This choice of shot silk from my stash was not the most inspired choice as the colour makes a hard base to match floss but so far so good.   Hopefully in the weekend I will get a photo in natural light which may show everything up a lot better.


  1. Those are some lovely flowers :)

  2. I think your choices are good - the stitches are so pretty when you study them closely.

  3. This looks very pretty. The new craft shop in town is running an embroidery course this summer so I'm going to go along and see what I can learn.
