Victorian Rosy Posy!

I received a copy of Cross Stitch Magazine for Xmas (Issue 248) and saw this pattern for a vintage bouquet with shades based on narrow-boat paint florals

An excuse to go to Peter Jones to choose threads from the carousel,
admire them and store them in my jammy dodger tin! 

As usual, OT tried to get in on the act....

Slowly the embroidery came to life and became addictive as the the flowers became visible

Almost there...

Finished! Just need to decide now whether to frame it
or use it to make something else.....
