Aren't these wonderful?? I have never done anything like this before! I thought they were going to be bullion stitches, but I was wrong! I started by using one strand of thread folded in half through the needle. I came up from the back and then twisted the needle until it was very tightly wrapped. Next I folded that in half and it twisted back on itself. Then the needle goes back in the fiber and gently pulled the thread down and voila! Stamens that are free like the ones in a lily. Luan, you are very clever!
Gail: The piece does not use a lot of thread to complete the different features. I was very surprised!
Cyn: Since we are so close to being done, you will have to wait a couple more days for a full picture as I want to show the closeups of all the individual components! Be patient, my dear, the end is in sight! LOL
