Rebecca's Brazilian Embroidery RR

I added the lupins on the left.  The stitch is a raised chain band.  I used Sassa Lynne variegated thread perle #5.  The hollyhock is loads of cast on stitches.  For the smaller flowers at the top I used Edmar thread, further down DMC perle 5 colour variations.  The pansies are cast on stitch.  The tall leaves are woven picots.  

A feather stitch seam and bullions both in Edmar thread.

Whipped spiders webs

This is how the block looks after my contribution.
