Decorative Pattern on Doily---Progress So Far

Hi everyone,

Sorry that I could not post the fabric rose tutorial as promised. I was busy looking after my mom-in-law who was unwell. She is fine now.

I have started a new sewing blog "Frills and Flares." There you will see all my sewing creations and sewing tutorials. I will post the fabric rose tutorial in my sewing blog this week..

This is my progress so far of the decorative flower pattern on the doily.

 
I have filled the orange color inner petal (marked by the arrow) with split stitch instead of chain stitch. It takes a long time to fill an area with split stitch than with chain stitch. What do you think?

Please feel free to post your opinions.

I'm doing split stitch as a fill stitch atm as well.

I'm using 2 DMC threads, rather than my normal 1. It's definitely filling up a lot more quickly and looks fine. As long as I pierce both threads and not go down inbetween them, which takes a bit of careful needle aiming.

Kasthuri: Thanks for your comment.

Megan: I'm also using two strands of threads, but I feel it takes a long time to fill up the petal. I think I should speed up.
