More William Morris embroidery

Yesterday I had a busy day stitching on my William Morris embroidery.

It started the day looking like this:

I’ve done a lot of the stitching on this one in my local coffee shop! I spent an hour doing French knots on one of the flowers.

I spent the afternoon finishing that flower by outlining the petals in stem stitch.

The final flower I kept simple, the leaves are feather stitch, the centre is cream satin stitch and the outlines are stem stitch.

Here’s a close up of all 4 flowers.

I just have 3 leaves to go to finish it up! Then comes the mounting..
