I've finally finished my very own BE project.Here it is.
Iam still undecided about the butterfly near the lady.Should I or should I not?? It looks rather artificial there.
Here are some snaps of the various flowers.
Flowers stitched using double caston and french knots for the center.Lazy daisy for the red flowers.
Flowers with Bullion, cross needle method and button hole wheel
Flowers with french knots, bullion and lazy daizy.
Bird bath and flowers with blanket stitch,cas ton and detached buttonhole.The red flower on the left of the bird bath was my rather pathetic attempt to recreate a tulip :)) Now you know why I refrained from naming the flowers.Either they don't resemble the actual ones or they are just the product of my imagination.However, Iam rather proud about this whole thing..all my own..you are free to get inspired from the snaps,but do link back to me please.
Iam off to wash the piece.Hopefully the colors won't run.Will update you on the aftermath of the same.
