Consider the lilies
Happy Easter, everyone!
The background of this egg--"Lily"--was stitched in basketweave with DMC cotton floss and a Smyrna cross trellis pattern using Kreinik #12 tapestry braid. The background for the cross was stitched with Fleur de Paris fine mesh velour, which has since been discontinued by the manufacturer. Outlining the cross is a gobelin stitch of Kreinik #16 braid.
The flowers and leaves were also stitched with DMC floss in a combination of long stitches and French knots.
