TAST - 2012 -Fly Stitch Week -1

Hi Friends,
This is my first TAST challenge. Sharon has announced Fly Stitch for the first week. The design I selected for Fly stitch is this.

 Here are some of my experiments on Fly stitch to make the flower look more the way it is.



The first one looked better than the second one. so I decided to stitch all the flowers with the first version of the fly stitch.
The completed motif.I have used french knots to fill the center of the flowers and stem stitch for the stems. The leaves are made of plain fly stich.

The  Flowers are  made of Fly stitch, these photos show how to make the flower.




Thank you for visiting my blog.  And All the Best for your TAST too.
Cheers,
Savitha.
