| This month features two floral motifs created using the Open Cretan
The spokes of Open Cretan make excellent stalks for flowers.
These two examples show using a Detached Chain Stitch (Lazy Daisy) and a
French Knot to create the flower and a fly stitch to create the calyx.
If you need any help with creating the individual stitches
and do not have an embroidery reference book handy, you can visit my
personal online stitch dictionary at
http://www.prettyimpressivestuff.com/stitches/index.htm for further
instructions on the individual stitches used
