Last Bouquet...and Vintage Floral #21
No frost here on the west slope of the Cascades quite yet. There are still a few valiant bloomers putting out their last hurrah.
I drink in the color and detail, trying to imprint them on my mind for the long gray winter ahead.
It's a bittersweet feeling!
My flower for #21 is done, not nearly so flashy as the real thing.
They look a lot like poinsettias to me. The way they are placed will make a nice contrast to the other blocks, most of which have their flowers centered in the middle.
If I had time I would join my local EGA chapter and get some better embroidery skills. I am tending more toward the quick and graphic in my stitching, and could use some practice with this kind of fine work....my hat is truly off to the embroiderers!
