The flowers are worked in 7 mm Japanese Ribbon stitch. I don’t have directions to work this stitch online – it is on my to do list but you can find directions for Ribbon Stitch here. The center is filled with French knots worked in a strand of DMC floss and strand of blending metallic thread. I added a small straight stitch to the middle of each petal. The buds are worked in same silk ribbon using a single detached twisted Chain stitch with a small straight stitch in th emiddle of the bud.
Twiggy bits are worked in Fly Stitch using 2 stands of DMC cotton floss topped off with a French knot worked in a silk thread which is the same weight as DMC pearl 5. The leaves are worked in closed fly stitch. These are worked in a strand of DMC floss and strand of blending metallic thread. stem stitch is used for the stems.
