Flower #2

It's been a while since I've blogged, hasn't it? Despite my radio silence I have been busy doing lots of crafty things... including stitching a second version of my flower embroidery pattern:


Click here to see my earlier post about the first version.... which I seem to have photographed the other way up to this one! Oops.

I think I prefer this simpler look, and I'm very pleased with my colour choices this time round (which, of course, are similar to the original felt version of this design).

I stitched the whole thing with backstitch. Nice and easy!

Here's a view of the back - because I was stitching with quite dark colours on thin, pale fabric I took care to keep my stitching as neat as possible and not carry any threads across the work:

Fancy stitching a flower of your own? I'll be sharing the pattern here on my blog sometime soon :)

That's so pretty!! Oh man, the internet is just too inspiring... So far I want to knit a blanket, start scrapbooking, and now do more stitchery!!

Thanks Bekah! I feel the same when reading blogs - too many fun projects, too little time! :)
