Lilac Cookie Bouquet - brush embroidery

I had a very busy week last week!  I finished all of my Etsy orders, then started working on all of my local orders.  I did lots of flowers and butterflies on a stick for my Mother's Day cookie bouquets, but my favorite by far was the lilac cookies I did by special request.  I wasn't sure I would have time to make it, so I told my friend it would be a miracle if I was able to do it.  I used a technique fairly new to me called brush embroidery.  If you remember, I used it in my ballet collection, but it's more commonly used on flowers.  I think anyone who is creating new things constantly has a new "favorite", so for now, this is mine!
