TDiTM Stitch #18
Reference: Twelve Dozen Stitches in Twelve Months
When I finished these little flowers, they reminded me of those huge feather fans the Nubian slaves used to stir the air around Cleopatra. Okay, now you know how my mind works…scary huh?
I liked the beaded version best for the larger flowers, but like the French knots for the little ground flowers! So when I use it again, I’ll mix it up.
Used perle 8 cotton for the entire stitch…and tiny seed beads. You’ve got the sequence down by now I’m sure…zigzag, stem, petals, large flower, small flower…bet ya can just look at the photos and stitch now! But, don’t worry…I’ll still post the charts!
