The Fellowship of the Flowers

One of the fun new things I am trying this year is a program by Michelle at the Raspberry Rabbits. It is called the Fellowship of the Flowers and I am really excited to join in. You can find out all about it on Michelle's blog post here.

I am really needing lots of different handwork this year as I am discovering that I cannot sit at my machine all day without putting undo strain on my back, so these fun embellished flowers are just perfect. Here is my first flower. Each week Michelle shows a flower on her blog and gives suggestions for embellishments.

I am trying to use things in my stash but I do not have a large supply of yarn or beads for embellishing. I did find a fun variegated chenille thread that I used to couch around the shapes and it seemed to work OK. Not sure where we are going on this journey but it sure is fun. I think these flowers are going to be addictive!

I like your flower and was very tempted to join the fun! Perhaps you could embellish with embroidery stitches and add just a few beads? I also have practically none in my stash.
