Pistil stitch

This is a sampler which I have tried for practicing pistil stitch.  The leaves in the middle stem is stitched using pistil stitch. 

Regarding the flower I have seen the same in Indus ladies.  And I tried that.  It has been done using alternate fly stitch and straight stitch.  But today I  came to know that this flower technique has been done by Leela of  Thanks to her.

Happy embroidering.
