Easter Egg Part Two

I am posting a progress report on my Easter egg project.  I have completed the ribbon and most of the decorative stitching on the egg.

Now I am starting on the flowers at the bottom of the egg.   First I am outlining the flower in the back stitch and then filling them in with the long and short stitch:

I am using two floss colors for each flower:

Now I need to fill in the flower centers and add all the decorative French knots!

Kim! Your Easter egg looks fantastic! I love the two-tone flower stitches. They look really really lovely!

You reminded me that I need to get my act together, finish my St. Patrick's Day stitches, so I can get to work on the Easter patterns I have waiting in the wings!

Have a great day!
