Below is a closeup. The four small leaves at the top are Satin Stitch Variation (Gol murri is the Indian name for this stitch). Each is outlined first with a running stitch before doing the Satin Stitch Variation which is done at an angle on each leaf.
The second stitch for this week is the Straight Stitch Variation (Chikna Phanda). This is shown on either side of the upside down heart and follows the Stem Stitch flowing down from the two leaves we did last week. They are meant to look like little leaves. I hope I accomplished the look. I did enjoy this stitch a lot and will definitely use it again. It required the use of six strands of floss which I am not used to.
I probably shouldn't show the backside, but here it is.
This is the front with the daylight and some lamplight coming through.
A little closer look.
