Yesterday afternoon after putting dinner in the oven I sat down to start what I consider the “fun” part of creating a new design. Since this is a more contemporary design I decided to use a larger variety of threads for embroidery including #3 and #5 perle cotton, Trezibond silk, Dazzle and Gimp. Using only some basic embroidery stitches I began the process of embellishment. So as of last night I was able to finish the base flower except for the beads. These will be added after all the embroidery is completed.
