Starting the bottom

Finally, a decent photo of the canvas I am working on! I think I have this figured out and this is pretty close to the pink overdyed canvas color. I started the bottom row tonight with another patch of flowers. This is worked in the cushion stitch pattern as above, and this one I used Silk Mori, four strands in 6124. I thought it might be too grey, but I like the way it picks up the blue in the top row, same position. I filled this one in with Magnifica beads, 10068. I have three more sections to put in, along with the border. This is quick, fun, and interesting due to changing threads and embellishing!

Not to mention it looks just like spring! I have enjoyed watching it "bloom" greatly here in very wintery CH.
