I found the center of that Dogwood blossom to be very interesting, it is a fabulously textured sphere
So, I wanted to create something interesting at the center of my sun-printed blossoms, "flat" was simply not going to do! I began with a small bead which was placed in a circle of wool that I gathered up tightly around it to form a sphere I could stitch on, then, one by one stitched small beads to the wool.

I made a few different sizes to co-ordinate with the various sizes of blossoms, for the smallest ones I just stitched small, layered, clusters of beads
