I signed up for a cyber class, Fleur-de-Lis, with Laura Perin last summer.
Here is the original. However, I wanted a slightly different border and wanted to use more of the Watercolors thread, Lexi's Blues. So here is my version.
I added a 4x4 mosaic in the outer background, but since I was ending up with 9 threads in the middle, I added a flower similar to one used in the design. I also moved the outer background to the background of the center flower but used a green Impressions, Guacamole, not used in the rest of the design. Here's a close-up.
I am a 50+ woman who enjoys various forms of needlework, including cross-stitch, needlepoint and quilting. I've even been known to sew my own draperies. I have been married for almost 30 years and have one teenaged son and one furry four-legged daughter.
