with lots of love for this sweet flower
I finished the stitches on it.
Blending the background colours together
and most of all the spiky leaves
were so much fun to stitch.
The use of blue and turquoise around the flower
worked out really well
(just the pizazz it needed !)
Nigella's seed pod
(hmmmm Emily Tull's workshop is waiting)
And in the garden there is a flower that I waited for this winter, inside,
that didn't come :
it seems being outside was just what it wanted,
you can't blame it.
