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.

Stopped by from "stitchin' fingers" to enjoy your blog while hugging the AC--the temperature is approaching 100 F. here in Tunisia! Your embroidery is really smashing. Lovely colors, pretty designs and masterful technique.
best, nadia

Very nice Flora ! You are like me I often put things down unfinished and pick them up again some time later-not enough hours in the day for us crafters!Blessings.Maisie.

That's true Maisie! I wish to complete all my unfinished projects soon. There are many, and all are big projects. I wish I had more time for embroidery. Thanks for commenting on my blog.
