Here are a few pictures of what I have been working on for the last two days. God Bless all the women who hand stitch, embroider, cross stitch, and do needle point. My poor thumb is so sore. I have completed 2 lilies in 2 days. I still have to do the stem and leaves. I can come back to that. I am concentrating on the flower right now. Please ignore my irregular stitches. I am an amateur to say the least. I didn't realize when I had this idea how long it would take. Never have embroidered before or hand stitched much. Not on big projects anyway. I was searching high and low for a Lily pattern to applique. I never came across one I liked. So I turned to coloring books and coloring pages. I found a coloring page off the internet of a group of lilies. I cut out the one I liked and made a pattern out of it. Once I finish it I am sure it will be lovely.
