Progress on my chrysanthemum

You know, I don’t think I really understood before just how many petals a chrysanthemum has! I’m still working on outlining the petals. It’s definitely coming along, though. The end is nigh. (That really doesn’t sound as positive as I mean it).

The lighting is bad this morning, but I need to get to work, so I’m posting them anyway. I’m sure y’all will survive.

Here is some more detail on the blossom.

    Really Lovely!! I’ll have to go back to the other posts on this one – curious about the type of thread you’re using for the embroidery! So pretty!!

    Gorgeous! You’re a better man–er woman than me, Gunga Din. Don’t like working with rayon. How is the Joker coming?

      Well, I admit rayon can be tricky. But I’m slowly getting better at managing it. And it’s so pretty!

      I need to find some time and energy for more work on the Joker. I use up most of my creative energy at work, so it’s a lot easier to make progress on kits than on my own designs.

    Very nice

  7. Exquisite !! Which brand of rayon are you using? Edmar?

    It is looking lovely. Rayon shines beautifully but it can be, shall we say, challenging to work with šŸ™‚ One thing that I found helpful when I’ve used rayon is to half hitch the thread in the needle. I don’t think that it improved my stitching but it did prevent the thread from sliding out of the eye all of the time which improved my humour!

    You have done really well.

    Yes, you’ve made great progress on this. Crysanthemums do seem to have a lot of petals, don’t they!
