Posie petals

I started with the back petals and did padded Satin stitch on all three of them. Then I did bullion stitches over the tops of them. Next the front three petals were all worked in the three shades of red using long and short stitches as well as padded satin. Tomorrow I will start on the wired petals that will get attached to the three foreground flowers. I am continuing to use one strand of Soie D Alger for all of the stitching.

Bullions on top of satin stitch is another thing I never would have thought of. Thanks for the tips, Pat!
