One Flower Wednesdays

What fun, I discovered the joy of embroidering the centres of my flowers. We took a road trip to Winnipeg to take back the grandkids and I sewed these 2 flowers together and decided to embroider them to help the time go faster. I can foresee doing more of this, it is fun.

 Somewhere in Saskatchewan
Took this through the car window. The fields of flax look like water in the dry landscape.

Your garden is really growing.

Your embroidered centers add so much to the flowers - beautiful!
I thought that there was water in the photo until reading that it was flax.
