Is It Spring Yet?

I'm seeing flowers flowers everywhere.  
I worked on three squares today and finished two.  
The first was another of my *not favorites*...I think because I'm still playing with the width of the stitch and contrast of colors and if I didn't like it, it could be a reject. This was Violets. 
The second is wild onion.  I can really tell the difference in the texture.  The violets was one of the first done and the onion was one of the last. I think The Quilt will be a progression of my nuno expertise.

The contrast of light and dark of the leaves is much better than it appears in the pictures.

I've already started another.  But I'll not show it until I'm done. 
The anniversary of my blog will be coming up.  I hadn't thought much about how long I'd do this....but I'm surprised it will be a year soon.

I can't believe that it is nearly 12 months Joei--I have enjoyed watching all your lovely work grow,

I really liked these before...but now OMG! What did you use for thread on the onion? Did you do a straight stitch first and then zigzag over that on the edge of the petals. I finally made friends with my machine and it has allowed me to do some embroidery on one of my pieces:)
Yes, I do steal all your ideas!

I like the third one particularly, thee is such yearning toward the light in it.
