An account of the craftwork I get up to, tatting, spinning, knitting, sewing, whatever

I was hoping for some sort of epiphany about which stitch to use for the flowers, like yesterday's one for the leaves, but no. I tried long and short stitch (or short and very short stitch perhaps) but it was just a mess. I made even more of a mess when I tried to undo it. I think the chain stitch outline works better. The centre of the flower is worked in buttonhole stitch. So there are four different stitches in the little flower - chain stitch, buttonhole stitch, straight stitch and French knots.
