Violets Teacup - update #2

This is finally starting to look prettier. I am done with most of the purple flowers and part of the teacup. Next, I will stitch the rest of the teacup, then do the green leaves, and save all the backstitching for last.  That will really make a difference!

I tried something different and took a picture of the clown outside next to my hibiscus plant.  I finished his blue bow tie using bright turquoise floss.  The diamonds will be purple to match his purple hat.

I went for a scenic drive the other day and took this panoramic picture from a mountain top.  Can you see the itty bitty buildings? That is downtown Los Angeles, about 30 miles away. Click on the picture for a better view.
