Autumn Rose Project--Long and short stitch--Step 1

After three months of hectic days I am back again to continue with my autumn rose project. Let us learn the long and short stitch.

Long and short stitch is used to fill up a large area like flower petals, where we cannot use the satin stitch.

As we did for satin stitch, in step 1, we need to draw the guidelines to set up the direction for the stitches. Refer to the image below to know how to draw the guidelines. I have also drawn the partition guidelines for each row of stitches in the petal. We are going to stitch three rows of long and short stitch with three shades of colors---from light to dark pink.
