The middle thistle has begun to emerge 12-14-09

 This really big thistle, (or maybe a carnation or some other spikey looking flower) smack dab IN the middle is emerging.  It is stitched with Raisin Wine silk floss, per the chart.  I really like the colors I chose for the other motifs - that dark steel blue (Old Maid of the Sea) and the smoky grey brown (Wattle N Daub).  Don't you just love the names of those colors?                                            - Deb
