First a row of chain stitch along an edge of one tulip. Then a row of detached buttonhole stitches in the chain row.
And the repeat.
It was interesting to do. Not something I'm in love with.
Now the striped tulip in front of the bird was fun. Those are rows of stem stitch.
I've never stitched underground before. This is all fun. I'm playing with color, stitch combinations.
