Small Flowers, 11

When all of the small flowers were completed, it was time to start work on the twigs and leaves that fill the spaces between the blossoms.

At first I was quite daunted by this. I have pictures of four versions of Floral Melody completed by other stitches and there is quite some difference between how they have done the foliage. I was not sure which version would suit my Floral Melody the best.

But once I had made a start, I just kept going ... and going ... and going. And before I knew it, all of the foliage was beaded and I hadn’t taken a single picture!

This is how Floral Melody looked with all of the flowers and foliage complete.

Happy Stitching
