Balance: Making Flowers on Silk #10

silkflowers14

Another set of jolly flowers to the right of the giant flower help balance out this free-stitched garden. It only takes two circles of the Lazy Daisy Stitch to make the daisy-like blooms. But first, the centers are made with a circle of Stem Stitches that are filled in with Needle Weaving. Add a few French Knots and these posies are complete.

More flowers drop in across the silk repeating shapes and colors. And the grasses are filled in with Straight Stitches and the loops of the single Lazy Daisy Stitch.

Just like making a balanced design, life requires balance too. And that’s why I’m setting this project aside for a while as I begin a week of dyeing. It’s also an opportunity to think about where to stitch next on this small garden on silk.
