Okay, the whole tablecloth isn't finished, but I felt so good about just getting the pansy done. I've tried three or four times to come up with a design I like. There is a bunch of these in each corner, latticing all the way around the edges, and a smattering of small pansies in the center.
It should be finished when I'm ready to retire. Haha.
Split Stitch ( yellow petals, burgundy, gold,)
Chain Stitch-( outline for petals)
Satin Stitch-(Brown 'eyes', yellow center)
Outline stitch-( green around 'eyes', purple, burgundy outline around flower, yellow line inside of chains stitch)
What d'ya think...is it worth finishing? My mother said I was crazy for making that much work for myself. I'm inclined to agree!
