And here is the last garland, the lovely one with the roses

The stems are embroidered with stem stitch 2 threads.

The leaves are embroidered with ribbon stitch with a 4mm silk ribbon

The center of a rose is made of 2 bullion stitches with 2 threads and 2 wraps, starting and finishing in the same hole.

The rose is made of a succession of bullion stitches worked around and overlapping slightly.

What I call “the first round” in the construction of a rose is articulated around the center. It consists of three petals that form a circle.

The first petal is made of a bullion stitch of about 14 wraps, the second of a bullion stitch of about 16 wraps and the last one of a bullion stitch of about 18 wraps.

When the first round is complete, just embroider the outer petals to complete the flower.

For this, you have to work as before, but more freely. Always keep turning in the same direction and also step back to start the next stitch. This is what allows petals overlap. The bullion stitches from this level does not exceed 14 wraps.

When you get the desired effect, that’s it, the rose is finished.
