At quilting today I was teaching myself to embroider a rose bullion. I used my trusty A to Z of bullions book.
The rose on the left as my first ever rose.... Dawn gave me some great tips on how to improve and the rose on the right was my second attempt.
Well that was the morning gone, though I did make 2 cuppas for us as well.
Came home and this afternoon I embroidered a rose on my wall hanger.
One rose later and I called it quits for the day. Said to Pat this will be a while in the making and by the end of it, I'll be able to embroider a rose with both hands tied behind my back.
Colours I chose suit the fabric colourway and the roses will replace the buttons that are on the patten.
I know each rose will be better than the last one, as its practice, practice and yep practice.
You're only limited by your imagination.
