Here's the restitched version of African Violets.I used Edmar Lola for the flowers and Anchor perle cotton for leaves.Much better than the cotton version ,don't you think?Still a lot of room for improvement,though. The Bullions are a little curly,maybe I should have reduced the number of wraps.When its a bunch of flowers,the petals get all twisted and overlapped.So,I guess this looks ok. (Iam trying to pacify myself ) .Again,Edmar threads for leaves would've given a better effect.
The conclusion..better off with Edmar than anything else.I am going to order a new bunch soon.
As far as the design is concerned, its a very simple one and can be used to learn Bullions(which Iam still messing up,as you can see in the pic).
The embroidery was also done in a bit of a hurry,so it lacks finesse.May be I should attempt it 'slowly' once again.

May your purse always hold a coin or two.
May the hand of a friend always be near you.
May God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.
Happy New Year !!!
