Here is the photo of what I have done so far. Instead of covering up the beautifully painted flower petals and leaves, I will leave them to show. I am doing French knots with three strands of Belle Soie, wrapped three times in two different shades in the center. A single strand of Kreinik silver cord in the stem stitch is the stamens, and the beads are from SJ Designs. The background is worked in a single strand of Kreinik #4 in black in Exploded Alternating Continental.
