Buttonhole Eyelet Flower Take 2

Here is my second sample of the Buttonhole Eyelet flower for TAST 2.
This is the one in my official sampler worked in Perle 5 thread with a variegated thread as the petals.
The centre one has a double row of petals around it.
I enjoyed this stitch very much and it was not hard to do either.




I wonder what will be next.

This is such a pretty stitch Doreen and just what I shall need when I come to make my middle daughter's 50th birthday present. She collects ceramic Victorian shoes and I am embroidering a design with similar shoes. They are decorated with roses and trailing stems and leaves. My embroidery will be framed and under glass for protection.

Your flowers are very beautiful! Thank you for your comment on my blog, it really helped me dividing my circle. I hope I can find the Milliners needles in my country, but now I know what I'm looking for.

That is so pretty and delicate looking....very dainty! I can see it as an embellishment around the neckline of a summer top.
