FPC…Stage 4

Stg 4  This is stage 4. For a much larger view, click on the pic.  The upper right flowers are made using the "cast on" stitch.  (Sharon B. at in a minute ago has the best embroidery stitch instructions online. Her tutorials start here. The tutorial for cast-on stitch is here.)  There will be another one or two added as it looks a little off balance up there.

  This is my first try with this stitch and am happily surprised at how easy it is to do.  The thread is size 3 DMC pearl and it worked up well.  The only problem I ran into was with the thread twisting as I would cast on the second or third petals. Perhaps there is a trick to this.  If anyone knows how to prevent this…please drop me a note or comment…
