Five Flower Samplers: Leaves & stems stitched

After putting Rapunzel, my blackwork project, aside, I went and look at my already started projects and felt like doing some brazilian embroidery so picked up my Five Flower Samplers, only to realize that I was still working on the leaves and stems. After complaining in my previous post that I was a bit fed up with all the greeneries, one has to stop and laugh at oneself. Anyway, I have just now finished all the leaves and all the stems, leaving the flowers, the border and the final touches. The photograph is not all that great but as soon as I start working on the flowers I will take some close-up photos and you will all be able to see better.
Can't help myself from smiling and wondering if I can possibly pick up another project where I need to do more greeneries of some kind :-)

This is so pretty....I love the sheen of Brazilian threads and your stitches are perfect!

I was wondering what threads you were using...Beautiful!

Hi Pierrette,


You must be in a green mood even though you want to move on to another color!

Well, now you are done with all of the greens so the next time you come back to this piece you will be working on the flowers and the border. Are any of them green (she asks while ducking!) LOL!

Just catching up on reading now I'm back from my teacher class. The leaves are lovely, looking forward to seeing the leaves with flowers which are just as lovely.

Hi Terry,

Yes, I do seem to be having a green moment :-)

All this green without pretty flowers is rather boring, but that should change soon.

Hi Pat,

I love Edmar threads because of all that sheen. It really makes everything you stitch with it stands out.

Hi Beth,

We always use Edmar threads when stitching Brazilian embroidery.

Hi Cynthia,

Flowers and borders are NOT green, thank goodness :-)

Hi Jane,

Brazilian embroidery flowers are just so lovely, mainly because of the thread used and the three dimensional effect that they have.

I have always been fascinated by them.
