French Iris and Dotted Swiss

I finally finished the shaded silk embroidery of the French Iris.  I love how it turned out. Every time I stitch a new piece I learn something new.
 I also finished a new teaching piece that is mostly for finishing. The stitches are fun but not too difficult but every piece features a different type of finishing. It is called Dotted Swiss because of the fun raised dots on the surface. I found some white dotted Swiss in my fabric stash to use in the etui and smalls. One side of the pieces has some color and the other side is just all one color but lots of texture.
