Progress Being Made!


I don't know how well you can see the detail on this, but here's my progress so far. I think if you click on the picture, it will enlarge...I hope!
The clump of flowers on the right is made with small yo-yo's and beads..leaves are also beads.
The three little flowers on the left are done with a single strand of metallic thread in the same way as people are doing the embroidery on paper. Picking out the waste tissue paper was fun!! The small pink ribbon on the upper left is done with embroidery floss cross stitch on waste canvas, which was then removed. I then highlighted the flowers which were already in the fabric with some pearl beads and did a single straight stitch (couched down) in each of the leaves to give a hint of green to them. Enjoy!
