Red Flower Finished.

I learned a lot in the course of this piece, which I can apply to future work.  Which I now have to decide on...so many choices, so little time.  

The thing I like about this one is the shaggy, wild sort of effect.  I didn't want a solid block of stitching, because it seems to me that movement is important in this sort of otherwise-traditional concept, and I wanted the effect of a wild flower flying about in the wind, your wilder rose as opposed to the tame garden one.



 

Well that was the idea, anyway.

Oh, I like this style of stitching very much. Sometimes "perfect" stitches feel a bit cold and lifeless...this rose is full of life and movement. Lovely!!
