Embroidery design - Basque Stitch Flower

Hello all,

Here is my next free embroidery design using the basque stitch.  This stitch when worked in a round forms a beautiful flower.  I have worked the flowers using variegated thread.  For the big flowers I have done alternatively big and small stitches in height.  The other two flowers, the stitches are all same height .  Added french knots in the centre.

                            French knots for centre of flowers
