Originally introduced in 1989, this bevy of flowers proved to be very popular and finished in so many different ways. I originally stitched them in Basketweave, using a different type of thread for each one.
The flowers stitched painted on 18-mesh canvas, measuring approximately 4 x 5. Not only are they easy to stitch but a terrific travel piece.
As for finishing. I had them finished with a stick and inserted into a flower arrangement. I have also seen some very creative finishing ideas. A sunflower and Daffodil clasps attached to the back and used on a straw hat. The rose was beaded and a scattering of Swarovski crystals made into a small evening
One customer who lived in Alabama stitched 21 Calla Lillie’s. She then had her florist arrange them into a centerpiece with magnolia blossoms and it became the centerpiece in her entry.
