Embellishing the wool appliqué

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
