The designs from "Inspiration" are always very detailed and very well explained. I really enjoy stitching them. This carnation is no exception.
The only things I altered were the size and direction of some stitches and I left out the two outer petals.
The two tendrils are embroidered in stemstitch. Along the inner curved tips are colonial knots.
Thread: two strands of The Gentle Art, Simply shaker Sampler thread 7008 rhubarb.
Along the outer curved tips are tulip stitches, you find them here.
Thread: 1 strand of Soie Cristal 2032 medium brown rose, the base with 1 strand of DMC metallic E316
