Floral spray with feather stitch

It was still Monday in my part of the world when Sharon posted the third stitch for TAST 2012, the feather stitch. This morning I knew I wanted to make a floral spray in my altered book. I flipped through the pages to see which one had a matching background. This blue and green page got the same treatment as the last sample I showed in yesterdays post. Without the gesso it was easy to stitch on it with an old embroidery needle. I used stranded floss and a shiny thread that feels like plastic. The flower in the center is origami made of teabags, I made it many years ago.I used fly stitches, buttonhole stitches and straight stitches for the flowers.
There's a better photo of this embroidery at my Flickr-page.
