I know,I know, the flower looks the kind which blooms during recession. Whenever I try to freehand this is what happens.This method does need patience. First you've to place a six strand thread on the outline and then cover it up with satin stitch. I stopped with three petals and attempted the method again on another flower.
The second attempt turned out to be better. Well, with this method out of the way and myself running short of any more outlining ideas , I had to tackle another issue - Miriam very thoughtfully initiated me towards it when she asked in my last post on outlining - How does this pillow case look? Till then I hadn't given it a thought and was randomly stitching flowers here and there with just the outlining possibilities in mind. But....when I glanced at the piece of cloth ,here's what I saw.
Aarrrgh.... Iam stumped!!! The question is - what do I do with this? I did unpick the 'D' stitched with scroll stitch since it was looking a little odd in the middle of all those flowers. But what next? I should've atleast thought about the flower placements,but now nothing can be done. I assume I'll need a massive burst of creativity to tackle this one and it doesn't seem to coming at present. Any ideas or suggestions?In the meanwhile Iam going to wash and iron this piece - it badly needs a clean up.
Love,luck and sunshine,
