Description

This is my handwork project for when my machine and I are separated.  I've got 20 8x8 squares, which will each have an embroidered 4x4 patch inside.  So far, I've only completed the two pictured, but I've got lilies, hydrangeas, irises, and dandelions sketched, too.  I'm using up an inherited stash of floss.  The plan is to make two of each design...and then make them into...something....I don't know what yet.

update April 2015
 I've been working on these off and on for years now.  Yikes!

Completed squares include:
Blue iris (outline stitch, a gazillion single stitches, satin stitch)
Blue vines (outline stitch, lazy daisies)
Pink vines (outline stitch, satin stitch, lazy daisies, French knots)
Maroon dandelions (outline stitch, featherstitch, French knots, lazy daisies)
Pink dandelions (lazy daisies, bicolor lazy daisies, outline stitch, French knots)
Orange ranunculus (outline stitch, bi-color Holbein stitch, Pekingese stitch, French knots)
Pink hydrangea (outline stitch)
Pink poinsettia  (outline stitch, satin stitch, featherstitch)
Red poinsettia (outline stitch, satin stitch, woven backstitch)
Pink veronica (satin stitch, outline stitch, Pekingese stitch)
Purple lily (outline stitch, French knots, lazy daisies)
Red lily (outline stitch, lazy daisies, French knot-lazy daisy combo)
White butterfly/daisy (outline stitch, French knots, lazy daisies)
Blue butterfly/daisy (outline stich, lazy daisies, French knots, satin stitch)

These are so sweet...I use to so love embroidery! Will be a lovely finished project:-)

I love that you're including dandelions with the other flowers

PurpleIris

HawkFan As far as I'm concerned, dandelions are a legit flower...and so easy to grow! Besides, the goal of this project is to use up all the leftover floss from previous projects, and I've got a lot of yellow to burn!

PurpleIris I'm great at growing dandelions. Your work is beautiful. I'm looking forward to seeing the rest of the flowers

PurpleIris this is a great project. I had a friend sketch me a couple things to embroider while I am on vacation this summer. I am relearning my embroidery skills along the way. Looking forward to seeing the rest of your garden grow.
