Pansies - Thoughts of You

My embroidery on Arlene's 6" pansy block- a RR on CQI. This was my first time making a pansy from ribbon and my first time doing the overcast stitch. I made three overcast stitch pansies on each of the 3 corners. Also included some silk ribbon and pansies embroidered from DMC. All throughout I did what I think is called the fern stitch with lazy daisies. I also embroidered the word "Thoughts" - the meaning of pansies.

With this RR we all agree to stitch part of a 6th block - a joint block. This was my part on Arlene's joint block.
