Two thread carnations I made as a gift for a secret pal exchange I was a part of for another craft site.  I have been planning to make some more for my mom and MIL - just haven't gotten around to it.

Those are beautiful Grin Any chance you're sharing the pattern? Also, what's the yarn? It works perfectly.

It is size 10 thread, and I will see about the pattern - if I remember correctly, it was worked in a spiral ruffle in a light colour, then edged in pink.  I then attached a floral wire for the stem.  I made some leaves, and holding all the excess thread down along the wire, wrapped floral tape around it.

Those are darling. They look real. Those would look gorgeous if you made a boquet of them and threw 'em in a vase.
