Now lets have a closer look . How many stitches can you see here ?
Mostly beautiful long and short stitch softly shading and gently flowing along leaves , petals , and stems. Some French knots in these pink flower centres .
Although slightly faded , I lose count of the number of different shades used here !
Some simple seed stitch within those typical Jacobean hills .
See how beautifully the curling leaf is worked .
Rich buttery yellow linen twill....a few small spots here and there .
I only wish ( and let it be a lesson for us all ) that she had embroidered her name at the bottom .
