I'd like to thank y'all for your wishes.I'm still not well..hopefully will recover soon..
I have finished the bud and the calyx(!) part of the design.
I've completed the bud with kantha filling stitch using 2 strands of Anchor embroidery floss shd # 1205. The calyx is filled with weave or stacked kantha filling stitches using 2 strands of green shd # 229 and the outline is done with kantha stitches using 2 strands of green shd # 239.
This is how I worked the weave kantha filling stitch:
Step 1: Work kantha stitches from right to left .The stitch should be equal to the squares in the pattern.
Step 2: Work kantha stitches from left to right as shown.
Repeat the first two steps to fill the second set of squares.The second set of squares are the ones which lie between the filled squares of the first row.
Repeat the process until the entire pattern is filled.
P.S Thanks Leela and Isabelle for helping me to rename the leaf.I think I'll go with Isabelle's suggestion, sorry Leela.
See y'all next wednesday ..
