Circle of Flowers BE Online Project, Update

For the last several weeks I have been taking an online class from Rita Goff from the Brazilian Dimensional Embroidery yahoo group. I have certainly learned allot and I thank Rita for being so patience with me and all my questions. This is my "Circle of Flower" project 3/4 complete with two more flowers to learn.
This photo is an up close of the "Cast-On Flower" using the lovely variegated purple Lola thread. This flower I have found the most challenging so far. It is not the casting on the thread to the needle that was challenging but the sequence of how the petals laid in the circle that was a bit confusing to learn. But with Rita's assistance the above cast-on flower was created. vbg I think it is such a lovely wee flower.

This photo is of "Creeping Flower" in the pretty pink color and the "Baby Breath" flower in the pearl white. I really love the BE flosses because they make your project shine. I have certainly been enjoying this class and I hope to use all my new Brazilian Embroidery skills to embellish "The Crazy Quilt Of My Dreams". So stay tune next time I will have photos of this wee project completed for you all to see.

Your work is gorgeous... well worth the hard work learning..... it will be lovely on your crazy patch. It looks similar to stump work but maybe not as fine?
Thanks for stopping by my blog... I was so happy to see you.... Been awhile both ways..
I got caught up in traditional rug hooking and needle punch! Honestly so many things to learn...
I will be back to see how you use this beautiful work...xoxo
