Well, I now know many of you, like me, enjoy stitching flowers without backstitches which really allows the colours to shine through. So, put a smile on your face with one of these splendid blooms that are to be found in the latest edition of Card Shop,(issue 96)
The subjects are shown in close - up, so you can see all the fine details. There are no fractional stitches in any of these designs, which is great news for beginners. The only tip is to organise your threads and keep your place on the chart and you'll be OK.
I love the way Medina, the editor, has finished the cards by adding a lovely light, fresh coloured green ribbon; I think it sets the flowers off a treat.
