Designed and stitched this bad boy...it took about a week, including one long session with bum to sofa watching each episode of Firefly and Serenity on Netflix.  I think the hard part was figuring out how to make the small bonnets appear 'floral'...photo may not show it so well here, but I opted for tiny single strand yellow +'s over my triple strand x's (if that makes sense).  



working on a couple of more projects, will post soon.

Cheers!

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

I see what you did there with the bonnets and I think the little +'s worked really well. This is fantastic!

It's so pretty and clean and neatly stitched. Love the tulip fireflies.
