Flower Basket

This Flower Basket is a “Pinsations” original design & stitch selection. The pin is added to the piece so that the pin can be removed, worn, & replaced. I never developed this into a series even though I have more flower pins – I must have started going into a different direction after I got done with it.

I have no idea what stitch I did for the flowers. The basket is Criss-Cross Hungarian (same as Basket 1 & 4). Obviously, I really like that stitch for the weave & shading (mix of DMC floche).  The background green is a leaf stitch.
