TAST 2016 Stitches 46 & 58

The flower above was created with 4 berry stitches.
I used size 5 DMC #48 variegated pink floss.
A hot pink seed bead was added to the center of the flower.

The flower tops were created with slipped detached chain stitches worked with size 8 DMC #48 variegated pink floss.

Using size 8 Anchor #246 (I think that is what the sticker says) green floss, the stems were created with stem stitches, leaves were added with detached chain stitches, and grass was added with angled straight stitches.

On an unrelated note:
My day of the Eerie Nights Blog Hop will be tomorrow.
I do hope you will stop by to visit.
I must admit, I was childishly delighted with the items I created with these Timeless Treasures glow-in-the-dark fabrics.
(Please note: I am not affiliated with Timeless Treasures.)

Aren't they spooktacular?!
(I just love glow-in-the dark fabric, don't you?)

Thank you for stopping by!

There is no wonder why floral designs are so frequent for embroidery - many stitches are MADE for stitching flowers! Yours are so pretty.

Very nicely done TAST stitches Renee. I have room for perhaps 3 more on my TAST owl and then I'll be finished! Glow in the dark fabric looks very fun :)

Love your spooky fabric! That berry stitching looks great as the flower. I need to look back at my book and remember some of these stitches from 2010.

Thank you for sharing how you did each stitch and what thread you used. I always find that interesting and I'm sure others do too.
