I use a lot of vintage embroidery motifs as well as design my own. I will try to share them in a way that you can utilize them yourself. As I do one I think you might like, I'll give you a drawing to download along with the names of the stitches I used. Along with silk ribbons, I always use lightweight threads up to a size 12 perle cotton. That's my personal preference, but don't limit yourself if you prefer a heavier, bolder look. This first one is for a square for a round robin with the theme of Autumn. The flower stems are done with a split stitch with fern stitch foilage. The flower petals are bullion stitches with tiny seed beads for centers. Oh yeah, did I mention, I like quick and easy!!?
