The past month has been all about embroidery journals on this blog! And there's still a bit more since we will be taking a look at YOUR wonderful journals and announcing the winner of the giveaway :)


By the way, this mini-journal that I've been making is also part of the prize and will head to the winner, hope it cheers you up!

I missed doing some shading so for the last spread I decided to work a little needlepainted flower. 


Stitching while away from home is a bit tricky since you're limited in the thread choice (I still haven't found here any thread stores), but thankfully the stash that I took with me was enough for this little pretty flower to be born.

It's not modeled after any real-life flower but is more of a fantasy. Any resemblance to an actual plant is accidental! :D

I was planning to work the leaves in long and short stitch first as well, but then decided to leave them as simple linework. I think it creates a nice contrast between techniques and helps the flower to stand out more while still entertaining the viewer with a bit more details :)
