My package arrived from my husband, and it is the Daisychain ABC sampler that I posted about a couple of weeks ago. While sitting (my mom is in a skilled nursing / rehab center with a long struggle to get to a recovery to come home) today, I was able to complete the first letter in this sampler. I worked on and completed the letter "A".
The curved yellow was done in a chain stitch, the yellow center is french knots, and the petals are done in a satin stitch. The pattern gave instructions for each stitch, and the designer stated that the satin stitch takes practice to look right. I agree. It seemed like each petal took longer and longer to do, to get the stitch to look good.
I am so linear in my thinking, that I just naturally (for me anyhow) started with the letter "A". And, I then started on the letter "B". But as I am writing this, I thought, I could do the letters randomly making it a little more interesting. Nah, my nature isn't going to let me do that, so you will be seeing them done in order. Sigh.
