Floral Melody, Leaf 8

After filling in the large leaf on the left I decided to make change to the other large leaf. On the left-hand leaf I had radiated the tri-cut beads to follow the curve of the outline.

On the leaf that I had beaded previously I had stitched them in parallel lines.

I think the radiating lines flow better and enhance the shape of the leaf.

Happy Stitching

I was wondering last post what you meant by "tricut beads". Are those the metallic appearing ones?
I have an image of an extant bargello purse, and each 'bargello line' is delineated by those sort of beads....it's somewhere on my Projects To-Do list.

I think I agree with you, although I must admit I'm not sure how willing I would be to unpick and redo them!
