Chain-Stitch Flower

Yesterday when I was cleaning the closets, I found this cushion cover. I remember I started this embroidery some months ago and discontinued it for a while in order to work on the other projects and I totally forgot it. When I found it yesterday I wanted to work on this piece again, because I thought doing some simple outline embroidery in between a time-consuming project (especially involving L&S) would be a refreshing choice.

I am using only three types of stitches in this: chain, satin , and French knots. This could be lovely if done in redwork style.
