Flower Petals Are Growing

Yesterday I started "coloring" my flower petals and doing the stitching. The photo shows 3 of the petals from the cut fabric, the coloring and the stitching. I'm doing the coloring with Prismacolor pencils. Then I cut out stabilizer and turn under the edge of the petal and stitch the edge to hold the stabilizer, then do some thread work to add dimension. There are 28 petals on the sunflower and I have about half of them colored. I've finished the leaves/stem coloring too. I should be ready to start sewing on all the petals by tomorrow.
