gcc Meadow MedleyWhile wandering through a meadow, one might find wild roses, clover, Queen Anne's lace, wild asters and golden rod. Or, one might sit comfortably at home stitching her own medley.

DMC floss on cotton broadcloth works well to bring these meadow flowers to life. The stitches and colors are planned to enhance the design with texture and dimension while honing your embroidery skills.

Diagrams and pictures appear throughout the text. Along with the cover photograph, there is an actual size photocopy of the piece detailing each and every stitch. 

 

Stitches used include lazy daisy with a twist, split and satin stitch, outline, French knots, bullion knots and fly stitch. Long and short shading comes into play with the aster and wild rose. There are two types of padding and the tendrils add a touch of whimsy with the creation of finely twisted cord.
