Sunflowers - Embroidered bedlinen

Not many words today...the pictures will speak for themselves...
Homework for my dear friends who visit deepashome - guess the stitches used in this block !!
( this should be very very simple :) )

The embroidery in this flower is far from perfect...My first attempt, and a tiring one too.But I'm happy with the end result.

Love, luck and sunshine,

Hello Deepa,
Thanks for the mail Yes waiting for the colour shade.The Sunflower is a Brazilian stitch;-Detached Button hole and the pair flower is Stem stitch filling.Guessing....

The colour combination is lovely. Glad you've enjoyed the stitching, I've enjoyed seeing what you have done
You managed it well ! Isn't it trellis stitch ?

You have incorporated Tressil stitch, diamond stitch variations. These flowers are superb!!
Please let me know what thread u have used!

These sunflowers are amazing, Deepa!
First close-up has trellis stitch in the center, isn't it? But don't know the stitch name in the petals... I have to try it :) as soon as you tell us which stitches you've used... great job!

This is just gorgeous work! Thank you so much for sharing it.

Beautiful work!! The flower center does appear to be trellis couching - Sukanya
