I love to stitch. The leaves came from a design I did years ago. The background is a batik. Once I had done the leaves, I started placing the flowers. The way I work is to make a certain type being sure to distribute them across the piece. Then I work on the next type of flower. The shisha is actually large sequins. The piece is about 30" by 24". It's machine quilted. As much as I like to hand stitch, I don't like to hand quilt.
