This is the pattern that I posted for you a few days ago. I have been poking away at it and now it looks like this:
You can see that the connected Xs are sprays of prim roses and the slanted and straight lines on the edges are open orchids. The aster was added on spontaneously. Sadly, I have no floss the color of stone for the background. I will have to go out and scare some up tomorrow!
Now I am going to practice some embroidery- specifically, the blue bell. This was my first attempt at it and I am not very happy. The top most flower looks very sloppy, in my opinion. What do you think?
