One Flower Wednesdays

Got my "new to me" book. Didn't take very long to get here. Embroidered 2 patterns on a couple of flowers already joined to the top.
 Our weather turned cold and rainy so I had time to sit inside and sew. Joined 14 flowers to make my total 54. 
The joys of living near the mountains in Alberta - Monday was 30C (86F), Tuesday 11C (52F),  only 8C (46F) and raining right now. Supposed to warm up to 25C (77F) by Saturday. Some people wonder why we talk about the weather so much here, but it is so changeable, it gives us a conversation starter. 

Last night when I showed my husband the newest embroidered centres, he asked if I was going to do every one. I don't think so, but they look nice scattered around.
Think I will make banana muffins today while I do some machine crazy quilt squares.

I love the embroidery on the centers. I'll have to remember this idea for later.
I like the setting you used for your flowers too.
Thanks for stopping by my blog.
I have just started my hexagons and it's so nice to meet so many others who are working on their own gardens.
