Toodling right along
I finished filling in all the little leaves with the split stitch....aren't they so cute?!
Next, I added thorns to the vine curving on the right up to the left. These are done by first making a lazy daisy stitch and then adding two strands of a darker Soie D Alger in the middle. Next you lay in the long lines that will become the flowers on the vine. After laying in all the long threads, I came back and Button Hole stitched each individual ones with three strands in three different red colors working from the top down.
