Hand embroidery of flower border

Hello everyone, I wanted to share where I have got to so far.....

I practised some of the stitches a few times, before deciding on which ones to use for my project. I love flowers and leaves, so it was easy for me to choose these to embroider.

You can see my initial sketch below showing my layout and what I wanted to include.



I decided to use 3 types of stitches in my project; back stitch for the stems, sating stitch for the leaves and petals and french knots for the small flowers.

I'm planning on using french knots for the middle part of the larger flowers to give it some texture and variety.


The image below shows how far i have got. I still have quite a bit to do, and i have my text to add.


I hope you like the project so far...
