TIF – February

I wasn’t sure I had the colours right and so made two blocks.

I used for the tree, a very thick wool – possibly 14 ply -and couched it with a variegated DMC perle thread. The biscuit shade is just DMC cotton and the other stems and leaves are in blue wools. The buttons seemed to work better than flowers.

This is much nicer in real life and is not well defined here. I think the time of day for photographing has a lot to do with the quality. It Couldn’t Possibly be me at fault. LOL
It is much clearer if you click on it.
