Hello everyone! How are you all today! It's been raining cats and dogs these past few days that I preferred to stay at home and do some embroidery to keep myself busy. My day is never boring because I always wanted to do something that I won't notice it's already late in the afternoon. More often than not, the rooster's crow at dawn reminds me that I've stayed awake that long! Lol!

I looked for flower embroidery designs online and made a sketch of Chrysanthemum flowers. I love its simplicity. As you we'll know, I have a beautiful garden hence I love flowers!
I used the following materials for my project:
- Wooden hoop
- Needle and thread
- Punch-in needle
I applied the French bean embroidery for the "pollen" and for the others, I used the punch-in needle for a more realistic look.
Next, I used the Satin Stitching for the petals.
The same kind of stitching applies for the leaves then for the stem, I used the back Stitching.
That's double blanket Stitch for the 'whiskers'.
Then little circles for the buds using French bean embroidery.
A nice 'quote' for my loved ones...
How does it look guys? I hope you liked. Thank you!
