The Lily is stitched!

I filled in the front two petals with the long and short stitch. Last, I added the red beads. I laid the batiste piece on top of the background fabric so you could see all the petals together. The front petals will be wired in and then the added third dimension to this flower.
All the wired elements will done after all the stitching is done.

This is breathtaking - you have done another heirloom!! I love the beads on the petals - like lily spots.

The beads are perfect, aren't they? Can't wait for it all to come together. Hurry, hurry!
