This beautiful piece of embroidery came from Dee Dee Triplett's trip to Guatemala. I doubt you can tell but each stick of each petal is made of bouillon stitch--that is a stitch that requires upwards of 10 stitches worked around it.
 It is amazing in person. The next one was "recycled" by the seller into something appealing to the tourist crowd.
 See? A handy little tote.
Here is an apprilla. I have been interested in these for some time now.  Probably because they are a style of "relief" embroidery meaning they usually have a three dimensional quality.
