Today starts week three. This week I want to grow a garden to combat our Northern Virginia weather, so I will add flowers and plants! I normally do not stitch flowers, but use cross stitch patterns to create blooms.
I was searching Pinterest and Google for embroidery ideas last week, and ran across ribbon embroidery and the beautiful flowers created in this technique. I am not quite ready to purchase new supplies, but I did find comparable stitches for floss!
Stitch: Woven Wagon Wheel/Spider Woven Wheel
Fiber: Weeks Dye Works in Hibiscus, using 2 ply
