Wool Applique Flower in a Circle

I wanted to work on something by hand besides knitting, so I decided on doing a wool applique with embroidery. I found some inspiration on Pinterest and then designed my own piece. I am not sure what I will do with this, perhaps a large pincushion or a mug rug? I enjoyed making this and it turned out better than I expected too. The yellow background is a woven wool material, the blue and red flower petals are actually cotton flannel that looks like wool, the red ring around the center and the green circles are wool felt.
Will this turn into a pincushion or a mug rug? Check back and see what I end up doing to finish this piece.

  4. Daryl, it is so beautiful! I would not have noticed all of the delicate stitch work if it weren't for the close up photos.

  5. just great, I love how you blended wool and flannel you can't tell the difference. the color combined with the different stitches make it seem like its moving. It looks like a fun hand project, I'm jealous of your perfect hand stitches. What ever you make with it will be great. I think the pin cushion is a better idea because you sure wouldn't want to spill tea on it.
    thanks for sharing

  7. Very nice! I'm curious as to the first steps of this process - do you do pencil sketches or what?

  9. So very pretty, and what great handwork! This looks like it would look great as a candle mat or under a vase of flowers. No spilled coffee, either!
