Stitching more flowers

My Brazilian embroidery table runner (supposedly) should've been completed by this time.

But my plans have changed..

After my last post about being unhappy about the "look" , I received quite a few suggestions - and most of them asked me to add more flowers. A blog friend even mailed me a picture to give me an idea. Thank you all !!

This was how it looked last month. My idea was to stitch four different bunch of flowers on either side with another few in the middle. Yes, it looked pathetic..

I have now added a border line with brown to connect the flowers. The border looked empty, so vines and fine growth were added. Some more new flowers joined the party.

 A Maria's rose. I tried this one with the Frost Edmar thread.

Creeping flowers

Rolled roses. This one was a totally different color choice.

and finally a tiny Peach blossom using detached buttonhole stitch.

There's still some more work to be done. I'll post the full view once I am finished with my remaining set of flowers.

Love, luck and sunshine,
