Three Posies

I'm working on a Kathi Campbell (Heart To Hand) pattern. I made a few changes (of course); where she called for hand dyed cheese cloth,  I used wool and added more stitchery. At some time in the future I plan to experiment using cheese cloth. I think it has lots of possibilities.
I used the buttonhole stitch, colonial knots and fly stitches.
I added some vintage lace, mini yo-yos  and antique buttons.




On the second square, the stitches used are: buttonhole, chain, back stitch, and colonial knots. I stitched 2 rows of chain stitches around the peachy center and added an old button and some beads.

Oh, the background fabric is interesting. I purchased it at the thrift store. It's a loosely woven cotton with character. I tea dyed it to age it a bit.
There will be a third block coming soon......
