I'm still very slow at sewing and embroidery due to the wrist injury that I did in November, so I was really pleased to be able to complete a project for a friend *before* the deadline. (Only a day before, but I count a win as a win!)
These embroidered flowers were appliqued onto a 14th Century gown. They were done in DMC floss in split stitch over a damask fabric. Using split stitch on appliqued decorative fabric is a really good way to cover a lot of area relatively quickly.
