French Rose

Needlepainting: long and short stitch

Trish Burr design: French Rose

Worked in single strands of DMC except for the French knots which I worked in three stranded, double knots. I did not use the suggested silk threads for hightlights as I did not have any in my stash of the correct color.

I purchased this kit (instructions, preprinted fabric) from Trish Burr’s website. The same instructions are also in her book, Color Confidence In Embroidery.

I truly enjoy working the fabric she supplies with her kit. I believe it is the cotton satin fabric that she also sells on her web site. I purchased two pieces of this fabric from her and plan to do my own long/short flower design once I feel more comfortable with the long/short stitch and the shading with thread.

The finished design size is 4 inches wide by 5.5 inches in height.
