Queenie has begun her personal ‘Sunday Stitch School’ more about this here
The first is Stitch 1. Anundsjö found here
I tried this on a cornflower which I traced. My stitches were closer together than Queenie recommended but for a first try I’m happy with the result.
As Stitch 2 is Backstitch, I decided to use it for the flower stem. One of Queenie’s inspirations was to use a sewing machine without thread to mark a length for the stitches. I found the machine foot pressed out most of the holes, so I repeated them and used a very fine marker on each hole. Worked really well. I also used Backstitch for the green leaves – freehand not traced. By the time I reached the left set of leaves I felt I was getting neater.
Thanks for the lessons ,Queenie.
