TAST Week 50 Berry Stitch

This stitch, so easy to do, came at the right time for me. I found it finished off my latest project perfectly. I am working on a cushion for a friend and I used the Berry stitch to make the flower and bee wings. I used two strands of cream tapestry wool for the inner lazy daisy and a thick yellow tapestry wool for the outer. For the bees I made their bodies with a chenille Pistil stitch, couched with yellow thread and a black/gold metallic thread for the wings.
