Before I get started on today’s post, let me just remind y’all that the giveaway for some lovely Japanese silk scraps (for crazy quilting, applique, edging, backing ornaments, framing, anything you like!) is still going! The odds are still very good. All it costs is one little comment, and you might get some exotic patterns in real silk plus a wonderful story for whichever piece you decide to use them on 🙂
Anyway, I finished another flower in the Plas Teg Bellpull (from the Mary Jane Collection). It’s the central blue flower, and I really like the finished effect. All that stem stitch filling got a little tiring, so I threw in some additional fly stitch (the middle two sepals already had it).
Also, it’s been a while since I posted a photo of the whole piece, so here it is.
