This is DukeWaxeye's favorite flower. :la: Orange freesias! Originalllllllly my plan was to stitch it up for him and send it as a surprise gift kind of a thing. Butttttttt. The embroidery class decided that as a group we'd each do separate flowers and put them together in a sort of quilt and hang it there in the clubhouse thing where we have our class. Since the piece became a donation for the club my teacher, JoAnn, didn't charge me for any of the materials and for about.... half (?) of the work on this I wasn't sure if it'd be a donation or a gift.

I took special care to take photos of each of my steps so that I could repeat it later if I wanted to since this is.... drum rolllllllll.... a custom pattern! :D The original artwork comes off a google image search for orange freesias and this one is apparently sourced from teleflora.com (whatever that is). We printed it out, traced it with some thick outlines, then traced that again onto the fabric so I'd have a stitching guide. Then I added some leafies to fill out the rest of it.

Most of the stitching was made up on the go. I used a lot of the lessons learned from the roses project I just recently finished, which is, to say, a lot of add padding > cover with buttonhole stitches. It shines really wonderfully and I'mmmm proud enough of it to donate it for the club but I don't think I feel great enough about it to give to Duke as a gift. Nnn... nyyehh... yeah. Satin stitches, bullion knots, stem stitching, and buttonhole stitches. Three different thread weights and three different colors.

It looks great!

TeleFlora is a flower shop that you can order from by phone originally - now of course with internet you can also do it online but that's how it started - you called, ordered flowers, gave your CC card number and all the things happened :)
