TAST - feather stitch

Another week, another stitch from Sharon and her Take a Stitch Tuesday.
I was familiar with this stitch already because last year I finished big textile thing called Big Ben where I used a lot of this stitch. Big Ben is made on black silk with batting because I really love that plastic efect you can achieve.
Sampler for this week is again on silk, dyed in yellow and red. This piece of silk was made several ago by my younger son. Again I used batting. I wanted to make something like flowers but in non natural colours. It still looks unfinished, it needs some accent. Probably something brown or dark green... donot know at the moment.

That is so beautiful! Well done. You could maybe accent it with dark green beads? Just a thought. It's really gorgeous.
