Today I added leaves and silk ribbon violets along with the rest of the ferns. It is sandwiched and ready for quilting. I actually started to quilt, sat down on the couch to bury some threads and realized that I needed to do the silk ribbon flowers to hide the knots and ribbons ends inside. I'm glad I had a light bulb moment before I needed to unstitch. I would be quilting now but I ran out of energy. I need a nap. I ran out of the purple 7mm silk so I used some cream for a few flowers. I'm glad I ran out. I like that there are two colours. Looks like this can be finished tomorrow. I am well pleased with the outcome. I pleated the leaves of the violets and they puff up like little mounds. I folded each leaf and sewed the pleat to the top, then I tacked each leaf with three stitches at the ends of the veins. I used gold DMC 5WT to make 3 french knots in the centers of the flowers. When I first stitched the nasturtium leaves by couching the veins, they were flat. Now that I have been manipulating the quilt to embroider the flowers, the leaves have curled up a bit. I like the dimension and the texture of this quilt. As usual I have forgotten to make a label and a hanging sleeve. I will deal with that tomorrow. Next up is the quiltmania mystery quilt. Next week I head back to Delaware to get my furnace fixed and check on my house. I will resupply my UFO's to bring up north. I think I will leave my Bernina here and quilt on the Tiara while I'm home. Now to nap.
