Spring is blooming

Well it would appear that my new flower has fallen down. 

This one seems to have ended up as an exercise in couching.  Blame Smith and Owen of Grand Rapids.  I went in for the basic block kit and they tempted me with a new selection of grosgrain and velvet ribbons.

Then to add insult to injury they had this lovely fabric (okay and a few more that may appear at a later date) that I have used on the leaves.

For the stem I used three lines of Kreinik ribbon stitched down with their black #8 cord.

These are addictive blocks that stitch up in no time.
