New project - Surface embroidery


These are the images of my second new project.
It's a surface embroidery and I'm using anchor stranded cotton.

I'd worked the stem in 3 rows of stem stitch,tendrils in 1 row stem stitch,rose buds in long & short stitch,part of the bell flower is long & short stitch and pollens in stem stitch & french knots.

Flower buds are in stem stitch filling,leaflets in closed fly stitch,part of the folded leaf
is trellis and french knots.

I'd filled the flower center with french knots,petals in chain stitch,thorns are filled with stem stitch,
leaf in battlemented couching with 2 rows stem stitch outline.
It's a crewel embroidery design by Shelagh Amor.

Happy stitching!
