I understand I'm my own worst critic. Maybe with LOTS of practice, it will get easier? Here's my addition to my round robin block.
I can see I need to add some more stitches inside the unopened bud, funny how the photo let's you see more than the eye. I thinking of of a dragon fly in the left upper corner, a nice silk ribbon on the stem and perhaps a caterpiller climbing up. Of course the seams are still "in need". All in good time.
Kind of creepy, I took the close-up and the camera said, "blink detected". REALLY?
Hope you have a fabulous week. I've added in some race training into the mix. I seriously need a few more hours in each day!!
