The http://www.joggles.com/ class with Susan Sorrell is really getting me excited about my stitching. Flowers were the next inspirations source, so I used a photo I took when we visited a mission in Carmel, California.
I started with a hand dyed fabric then layered some thread lace left from another project. Next came painted cheesecloth petals and some netting. The petals have straight stitches down the center and whipped edges with French Knots for centers. The background has Feather Stitch in two colors.
