Such a simple rendition of what was originally an outline for a Thistle. It's stitched in Flower Thread almost entirely with Buttonhole, the only exception being the vein on the leaf and the stamens, which are Satin.
I've been busy finishing the dolls, which are getting ready for their 15 minutes of fame in the newspaper... and working. That's why I've not been here. You'll see soon enough though and I'll certainly make the hugest announcement when the girls are ready. I love them myself. The fabrics are gorgeous.
