Purple Roses

the flash was on when I took this hence the difference in colour to the following pics
I went for a dark grey thread and appliqued in a scrappy style.

I would have chosen a stronger contrast to the background had the colours been available in the scrap bag. This was not working for me.

I outlined the flowers in black.

Then decided that it all the stitching needed to be black to stand out. (Just seen that stray thread. LOL!)

I have edged it in green but may go over it in black. Can't decide on that at the moment.

There's more...
