Small Flowers, 9

This is how Floral Melody looked before I added the small flowers.

I worked a couple of flower types at a time, starting with the largest. When I had completed all of the same flowers, I stood the frame up and reviewed my progress.

I wanted to make sure that I had enough beads to do all of the same flowers in the same colour way and that the overall effect was balanced.

The first few flowers were predominantly red or orange and at that stage the overall effect was very orange.

But gradually the smaller blooms, worked mainly in the blackberry, blue and green beads began to make their presence known.

This is how things looked with all of the small flowers added (including one that I forgot to write about!).

Happy Stitching
