The First Iris Petal

The First Iris Petal
This stumpwork iris may be taking longer than anticipated, but this weekend has been a good one for hand embroidery, anyway. Color after color has been stitched into the petal, and the long and short stitch is a perfect choice for showcasing the rich tones.
