More Stitch Flowers


Here are two more stitch flowers. I used a watercolor wash background, cut the flower shapes and pasted them on then stitched around the flowers. This is very fun! These are about 6 x 9. I am getting better at changing out my thread in a flash. That's important!  On the top image I think I will write a little flower quote or something in calligraphy---I did leave some room for it. 

Calligra-Fun starts tomorrow!  It will be an ongoing class so anyone can sign up to take the class at any time and view the videos at your leisure as many times as you would like. 

Also, if you are taking the class, please know that you can always leave a comment here and ask me things about your progress or you can email me --or you can leave a question or comment within classroom Calligra-Fun ning site. Let me know if I can help you in any way. Thanks!!!

Oh my Martha. You must've read my mind yesterday. I was thinking about something so very similar, but couldn't get away from work soon enough to get my project completed. Way to go. The stitching gets easier and better with practice. You're doing great!

I forgot to ask - how is your husband adjusting to your new love affair (with Bernie)?
