Day 5 — Tete de boeuf and more florals

Today’s sampler stitch is “tete de boeuf” — literally…head of the bull/beef head. I played with colors and number of strands — I like it best when it looks like a flower!

I turned yesterday’s stack of floss in to a bouquet of sunflowers and roses. Love how it turned out, though I have thoughts about what to do differently next time, including making my own design instead of copying. I was inspired by Erin McMom, who does beautiful floral embroidery.

My sister’s favorite flower is sunflower, so this is for her.
