I'm still working on my wool appliqué flowers,
using buttons, beading and embroidery.
Some of my favorite stitches are
the herringbone, blanket (or buttonhole),
chain and back stitches.
I love gold accents,
so I'm using quite a few gold seed beads.
The hand work is meditative.
I stitch by the window,
looking out at the water.
I'm almost done with the flowers,
so now I'm auditioning fabrics for the borders.
Have a colorful day
