This latest work really is a Work In Progress and a very simple one. The stem – 4 threads used- is made with Whipped Chain stitch. It is lovely and rope-y to feel.
Second photo – Fly stitch leaves at the base, Stem stitched flower stems and Straight stitches above. The flower heads are to be French Knots in 2 shades and I have yet to wire a small leaf to sit with the existing frond.
I didn’t know if you click on a photo 3 times it enlarges more.
