First Petal

This went quickly considering I had to study and study the instructions. It called for "thin fuse-wire gimp" and I have no clue where to find that but I did find some rayon wound wire in my stash and used that. I used Omega size 30 cotton for the thread.

My tension sucks. It took me awhile to remember to tension and it does show.

New things: gimp, adding and throwing out pairs. The flower is made up of five petals. Some are whole stitch and some are half stitch so I'll get to practice both. Glad I decided to go ahead and try this!
