To vary the work on the daisy I stitched these two leaves. First marking the outlines with running stitches, then embroidering them with closely worked fly stitches. The thread is Gloriana stranded silk, the color is called "winter woods" Nice variegated colors, aren't they?
The centre vein is a split stitch embroidered with DMC 3371 black brown.
On this picture it seems I have not made the split stitches exactly on the centre of the fly stitches.
Here I have added shading at the base of the petals. The thread I used is DMC stranded cotton.
More shading with a darker color.
The centre is filled with french knots. The thread is Gumnut Yarns Stars stranded silk in very light lemon, light and medium daffodil. I used two strands. Around them I stitched french knots with black brown DMC stranded cotton.
