More Flowers and Foliage.

 With the same set up as before I have used a different programmed stitch to embroider more leaves in various shades of green. My sewing machine is a very old Pfaff 1475 but it is a great work-horse and very reliable.
 This time the flowers are in clusters, so I have altered a stitch to compress the programmed flowers so that they stitch out more as a cluster and not individual flowers.
                                        Variegated thread gives the subtle shades of mauve.
Again I have washed out the soluble fabric, leaving the stitched supported by the green chiffon, which I have cut away from the edges to give free standing leaves.
Here is yesterday's foliage and flowers piece washed out and dried.
