After having sat over it for hours, looking closely at each stitch, stepping back from the frame and looking at a finished piece - from a distance - is always such a good feeling.
I gave up on both French knots and running stitches for the markings on the last flower.
Instead, I used detached chains. When stitched in the same direction as stitches below, they sink into the embroidery and become part of it.
The flower is much more solid looking than any of the others but the wispy leaves around it kind of make up for it.
And so, there it is. The best part about finishing - I get to start something new! Mind you, we are harvesting the grapes early next week, so there won't be much stitching time.
Have a great weekend,
