long and short stitch

I have embroidered this design on the kurta using long and short stitch I have used one skein of anchor stranded cotton thread for long and short and the centre is french knot with six strands was a great help for me and this site was a great inspiration for me though my work is not so fine and needs improvement.


 blue and yellow flowers  two skeins for roumanian stitch in blue and out lined it with button holestitch in yellow.The outline got a little curled inside i should have used knotted buttonhole The idea of filling the flowers was taken from sadalas blog from saree embroidery
