I love cherry blossoms and have wanted to do a cross stitch piece of them for a while now.  Originally, I was going to make one large piece, but I had three small embroidery hoops that I wanted to use.  I decided to make one large cherry blossom branch broken up amongst the three hoops. 

By the way, this was done entirely free handed.  I didn't work from any type of pattern.





This one shows a piece up closeEach flower has a single glass seed bead in the center.

It seems that different people have an idea of what I am, and what I should be. And then there's me.

I really love these!  I am a nut for anything cherry-blossom but I really love the way they look on the blue aida cloth also.  Great job!

Those are just beautiful. The colours are just right, and the beads are an awesome finishing touch.
