More wood avens

Next, another sheet of wood avens.  There are just five on this sheet rather than six like before, so it should take a little less time to do.


Otherwise, it's the same as before.  Using Madeira 1410, I buttonhole stitched round the edges of the sepals (the green bits):


Then a band of stitches in 1410 around the edges:


Partial filling in with a thread formed from one strand of 1410 and one of 1411, to start the shading effect:


Then complete the rest with 1411:


Here's the full sheet:


Petals next!
