So far, I have stitched the flower stem using the portuguese stem stitch and the leaves in satin stitch:
For the flower petals, I first thought I would stitch each petal in long and short stitch and use two colors of floss. This pink and the red. But I didn't really like the pink added into my color combination. So then I decided to outline each petal with back stitch and fill each petal with some sort of filling stitch but I didn't really like the way that was looking:
So I outlined each petal using back stitch. I still need to add the french knots to the flower center:
Now onto the flower pot. I am using the scroll stitch to give swirly edges to the pot rim:
I love this blue color:
I think I will do the scroll stitch on the top edge of the rim as well.
I will post more pictures as I finish this project. I also wanted to share a picture of some floss that I just bought as well as these two beautiful fabrics. Each is a fat quarter. I really like the colors on these.
