WIPW - Roses

It is a hot summer here and my Work In Progress Wednesday, is just a short report.
Why not head over to Sharon's WIPW to see more eye candy from others, as well as what she wrote about various uses of her cz stencils, mine one among them.

Kafferepet

I have made two more stray stems by using my cz stencils and TAST stitches #27 Basque Stitch and #20 Butterfly Chain

Then I played with the #73  Wrapped Coral Stitch on the edge of the rose petals. There are some Pistil stitches and Colonial Knots, too.

    1. This stitch was so much fun to do, I had to keep using it, so it ended up on the petals as well!

    1. Don't worry! It is me being slow in posting the comments and answering them.
      That was a massive pdf full of combinations, so I am sure you will find the stencils fun to use.
