I ❤ embroidery . . . Fly stitch -2- Using the TAST 3 weekly stitches I have started with Week 1 - Closed Fly stitch for the rose leaves and a version of single Fly for the seams. Threads are Edmar Lola for roses and DMC rayon for Fly stitches. ~By crazyQstitcher

Choose from white, off white or linen colored background fabric, and of course you can make the flowers any color you choose. Fits a 5" x 7" mat or frame. $13.00
