The purple is double running stitch – I was inspired by my Turkish embroidery book to try it as a solid filling (called sira ishi in Turkish). It’s really pretty and fills large curved shapes well (the original instructions suggested long and short stitch). Speaking of long-and-short stitch, I started work on this flower:
The other two petals are supposed to be worked in chain stitch, but I love this petal so much I think I will do them all in long-and-short stitch. The two pointy petals/leaves are supposed to be purple, but I’m changing them to green.
Lastly, I worked two more of the berry tops in padded satin stitch.
