Take a stitch Tuesday Raised Cross Stitch Flower


Love this stitch!  I stitched directly to a cq block even though it was the first time trying this stitch.  It looked easy to do and reminded me of making that children's craft called a gods eye.  I made loads of them when I was a child.  I also added the woven detached chain stitch.  I need to finish adding that stitch to the rest of the flowers.  Thanks to Sharon B at http://pintangle.com/ for all the instructions!

Yes, this is an easy but stunning stitch, and as you say, it is very similar to the God's Eye stitch.

Very pretty! I like how you combined them with the woven detached chain leaves.
