The blossom is pistal stitch with a colonial knot worked over some of the blossoms. The nuts and backing are bullion stitch. The leaves are either satin stitch or bokahara(Sp) stitch and the large leaf is outlined with backstitch, the stems are stemstitch.
I have just taught myself how to tat and the little butterfly was the first of my efforts I felt I could give to someone else. The body is a freshwater pearl that was exactly the right size and shape and the antennae are topped with a glass pearl bead.
The second seam is a little hard to see but it is made up of herringbone stitch, straight stitch, detached chain and colonial knots. All my stitching is done with single strand DMC except the silver thread.
This is picture of the block so far and I think it is coming along beautifully and I can't wait to see it when it is finished.
