My first idea was to do a cast on stitch rose, but I'd had enough after 5 stitches and I was very tired, so I just put some bullions in for sepals (2 out of 3 of which ended up with an extra wide loop at the bottom, grrr... also needs much practice) and a quick stem in its own namesake stitch - stem stitch. Now what, if any, flower it resembles I don't know, but it at least exists.
I'm pleased to say there's been quite a bit of interest shown in this month's technique, even from stitchers who aren't signed up for the challenge. A big welcome to all. All you need to do is to post a photo of your challenge work on your blog or photo album or a social network page with open access (I don't use facebook for instance, so I can't visit your page to get a link if it's not publicly visible) and leave a link on one of my Monday posts here. At the end of the month, when I do the round-up post, I'll include links to all the pieces I've been 'shown'. So, feel free to get stitching and join in!
