I have spent the entire morning putting directions for sewing a dress onto my other blog, With Needle and Stick. Wow, I hate waiting for the photos to upload. In anycase, I decided to update this blog too. I decided to show my new embroidery piece in process. It will be a bright pink cosmos in the end, but here I am working on the center and on the shadows along the edges of the petals. I seem to be stuck representing only a quarter of the flowers that I sew or paint. I am fascinated by their intricate structure. The cosmos along with zinnias are some of my favorites. I will keep further progress updated.
