Calendar Girls February Postcard for Debbi

This is my February Postcard for Debbi-----------------
The base fabric is a piece of royal blue felt on which I ironed some Gossamer Fuse and then added the heart shaped vase which is a cerise colour.
Over this I placed a piece of an old navy sheer scarfe with tiny white flowers and then ironed it all together.
I worked 2 rows of navy and 1 row of aqua cotton thread in running stitch to outline the vase and then I stitched by machine the pattern that is on the pink vase in the calendar picture.
Next I embroidered the flower using Lazy Daisy stitch in 2 different shades of aqua added a French Knot in yellow for the centre of the flower and in green I worked the stem using Stem stitch and Lazy Daisy leaves.
I then echo quilted around the vase and flower on the machine.
I wrote the word "Friends" with a Fabrico fabric marker pen and hand stitched it onto the vase.

I hope you like it Debbi
