Here is this months block for the round robin i'm involved in. I have to admit. I was terrified to start on this. It's ALL white. Ooooopphhhh! Plus, the colors need to be pink and a little green and yellow! I'm not a pink person...sooo...i'm stretching here. Which is a GOOD thing! LOL!!! Anyway, after much deliberation, I decided on fuschias. I'm beginning to think i'm slightly insane for starting it, but i'm waaaaaay past the point of no return here! I'm doing them in Brazillian embroidery and I think i've even managed to inadvertently create a new stitch. That part is a worry. I reallly hope the block owner will be happy with the work and not KILL me! LOL!!! When its done, it will have three blooms with leaves (maybe in sre....thinking I need to speed up the process) and some yellow french knots along some of the stems for some other color. There is also a little butterfly half done....I find I bounce around a bit to keep things interesting and me from sidelining the project. Anyway....hopefully it doesn't look to much like an amateur is doing this. Despite the fact that an amateur IS! :_)

Where did you get the flower pattern? Or did you make it up?

That is SO beautiful! Pink or not (i'm not a pink person either:>)you've ably captured the delicateness. I'd be so happy to get that if it were for me.
