WOW: LE Stems Finished

WOW = WIPs On Wednesday 

I've had some serious quilting time open to me these last few weeks, and I've put every spare minute to use. My hand embroidered stems are completed. And I love them. They don't look like  much right now, but I can see the bigger picture and its wonderful.

The only thing is, the vases look a little plain to me now. I've just pinned them for this pick, they aren't sewn down yet. So today, before I start thinking about my flowers, I'm going to embellish them in harmony with this quilt: which is fussy and embellished and full of love. I think they need it. And I'm going to work as I go, I don't have any firm ideas yet...


What's Your WOW?

    1. Yes, there will be plenty of embellishing on this quilt, it needs lots of detail and fussiness.

  7. I can only imagine ti time you have put into that quilt top. So much hand work! I'm sure you will come up with something to fancy up the plain vases.
