What are you most proud of? The layering effect of the background fillers. I'm hoping it's good enough to enter into a small local competition.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? When faced with a blank piece of fabric - dividing it up helps. I started with using a stencil for the roses, stitched the lines, then marked out the lines for the background.

Hello again!!! SOOOO good to see one of my New Zealand friends here! I am still talking about all of you to anyone who will listen! Your project turned out absolutely beautiful. I have my nose pressed up against the screen trying to see everything you did. The backgrounds are perfect and the roses elegant. Job very well done! Thank you for posting this...say hi to everyone for me. Hugs, Cindy :)

Photos are so hard. I want to see it in person. The overall effect is gorgeous but I would love to be able to touch all the wonderful texture in person. It only needs beads if they would please you. Congrats, it is so lovely

Thanks Deb and Cindy. I have painstakingly unpicked the initials and re-worked a better font. I have also placed a single pink pearl bead in the center of each rose - it's enough to give 'pop' and a little contrast to the white and green. Just loving working on the quilting on such a small size!

The roses are my favorite. Beautiful work.
