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.
