Free project

I would like to share my knowledge of how to embroider a rose using long and short stitch and satin stitch. I have given the pattern below which I am currently using for my pillow cover project.

Step 1: Transfer the pattern using a tracing paper or carbon paper or any other method you are familiar with.

I transferred the design using carbon paper. The image below shows the transferred pattern on the pillow cover.

We shall see Step 2 --- "Choosing the colors for the pattern" tomorrow.

Current projects

Currently I am doing two embroidery projects, one which involves a lot of embellishments, and the other a pillow cover with rose border on the sides and monogram "s" with flowers around it at the center. Here are the pictures:
