Embroidery Design - Granitos Stitch

 Hi all

Hope you all had a great weekend.  Happy that you all had a nice time seeing my WIP's in my previous post.  Today I am happy to share with you a simple design to practice another simple design i.e) Granitos stitch.  

I have used this stitch in one of my table cloth project back in 2011.  That is the time I started doing embroidery and you can view it here.    Sorry for the poor quality of the photograph.

Now for today's design

Pattern for the design

Stitches Used
Flowers - Granitos stitch (4 stitches)
Leaves - Granitos Stitch (4 stitches)
Stem - Stem stitch
Centre of flower - French knot (4 stitches)

Anchor thread numbers
Big flower - 28 (6 strands)
Small flower - 27 (4 strands)
Leaves - 255 (3 strands)
Stem - 258 (6 strands)

For big designs you can use 6 strands and 4 to 6 stitches for each granitos stitch.  For doing short granitos stitches use 2 or 3 strands according to the length of the stitch.  

Tutorial for this stitch will be posted tomorrow.
