I have done quite a bit of work since I last posted. The bottom petal is taking shape. Things aren’t too hard, although the area is pretty big so it takes a while to complete a color.
My aunt has asked me to do a couple of projects for her. The first is called Gay Parasol and is a design of a pink iris from A Silver Lining. As I was winding floss onto bobbins, my first thought was that I wasn’t aware that there were so many shades of pink. The iris is huge, but thankfully I don’t see a lot of confetti stitches, so I think the design should go pretty quickly. Here are the results of about three hours worth of stitching.
