Back to control - and Embellishment

This was a resist piece of silk dyed with a weak iron blanket and then I have stitched the outlines with pellon on the back and used tiny seed beads to represent the florets around the flower heads. This was a piece of Queen Anne's lace that I had dried so I wanted to try and create that ethereal look the flower head has. Of course attaching the beads took several nights of stitching. I hope to add this to my sample quilt now it is done
