Hope all r doing well. Today I am very very happy to share with you my embroidered flower in long and short stitch. Whenever I see embroidery projects using long and short stitch, I always wanted to learn it perfectly and want to make a project out of it. I am very much inspired by the projects done by Flora of Flora's colors.
Then comes the projects of Trish Burr who is a perfectionist in long and short stitch projects. I bought one of her books "Long and Short Stitch Embroidery, A collection of flowers" under Milner craft series through Amazon. For more than two years I was going thru that books like a kid and it is a colorful treat to the eyes.
First have a look at my LS flower(long and short stitch flower).
Last month when I completed all my custom orders for the kurti(usually I don't take any orders. I do it only for my co sister for her colleagues bcoz she is the one who encourages me a lot in my family to do more of my passion than anybody else), I decided not to do any project with deadline this year. Doing with some deadlines always creates stress and I don't want that stress in continuing my passion. So nowadays I am enjoy doing embroidery as well as cross stitch and crochet in my own pace. And that too sometimes leave me in a situation that I am doing something without any aim.
So I took the first project in the book and choose the colors which I had in my collection that is nearest to the shades recommended in the book and finally started doing it . Though it is a small flower it took me one day on and off between my house hold chores and I really like the out come. I am feeling soo happy after completing and will be doing more on long and short stitch after publishing this months free pattern.
Now a close up of the LS flower.
I have worked this flower with two strands of anchor embroidery threads. The book is a very useful one for those who are interested in learning the techniques of long and short stitch.
Hope all of u like it. I will be back with another finish in cross stitch in my next post. Till then have a happy time with needle n thread.
