Bullion Roses

This is a closeup of an embroidery I did for a bag. Now I think it is too delicate and am planning on making it into a bedroom pillow. It is a Kris Richard’s design called “All Roses” from the book “Embroidered Bags and Purses”. I love doing this type of embroidery since it is such a challenge. I changed the threads to DMC floss because it is easier for me to find. I had to mix the colors for the hydrangeas. The pattern called for an expensive brand of variegated floss I thought was rather dull looking, after searching and finding it at a local needlework shop. There is a photo of the whole design on my flickr photostream.
