Watching the flowers grow

I tend to start projects and not end them. I have UFOs, but I also have a wardrobe. Everything in my wardrobe is unfinished. One day I can decide it needs a new embellishment, a repair or throwing into the scrap bag for future use.

This skirt started life as a roll of fabric some 9 months ago. It was actually leftover from another – unsuccessful - project. The pattern was from Yeah I Made It Myself and the skirt had been comfortable worn, taken off, washed and worn again a few times.

Then I decided that it could do with a few funky roses on the bottom broke out the patterns (from Sublime Stitching) my hoop, floss and needle and got to work. Now it looks like this. The stems were embroidered freehand.
