Playing with embroidery

Just having a little tinker with some painted fabric, embroidery thread and a scrap of my own crochet.  I wanted to incorporate some hand embroidery into this scrap of lovely patterned fabric that had been painted up for another project.  You can see where I have unpicked some embroidery that I didn’t like but I rather liked the flower…what do you think?  I think my handmade crochet helps to set it off.  I like how some carefully chosen coloured stitches can enhance the faded, knocked back rose.  I think I’ll keep playing!
