It's funny how sometimes you just need to start something, and then you really enjoy what you are doing. That was the case with the basque stitch. I didn't really feel like doing it, but once I started I really enjoyed myself. As you can see I really like to do floral motifs. I used cotton perle mostly, but also some silk ribbon (2mm), wool, cotton floss, and other thread.
I also thought of making something that had to do with gears but decided to do flowers instead.
