Hydrangea [a finish]

You may remember my little Brother got married in September to his fiancee Michaela. You can read about it and see some more photos of the wedding in this post.

This was Michaela's bouquet and inspired by the colours here and this pin from my embroidery Pinterest board, I made them a small momento of the day.

A more modern take on the traditional wedding sampler:

The embroidery is all done in two strands of DMC threads in varying colours using lazy daisy stitch and lots of French knots.

I used this tutorial for the leaf, and I love how it turned out! I finished this back in October but I've just been able to give it to them, and as I don't know if they read my blog, I can only now share the finish!

This is another tick on Q4 Finish Along list. You can find my original list here!

It's beautiful, Jennie. Thanks for the link on raised fishbone. My embroidery skills are very weak now; I have to take it up again.
