Take a stitch Tuesday 62 - Raised Cross Stitch Flower.
A new stitch for me. I did the flowers in cotton perle first and thought it needed something else and I remembered I had some silk ribbons. When I found the ribbon I also found various lilac threads and one of them was like a chenille, so I used that instead. Some of the flowers look quite square-ish rather than round but I suppose real flowers are not all perfect either. I've also done a chain stitch stalk, some pink fly stitch [I thought afterwards that this was the wrong colour pink but I left in anyway] and stitch on some tiny square sequins. The background fabrics are hand painted and stamped, the lace is hand painted and stitched on - backstitch and little sequins.
