Welcome to this month’s Freebie Friday

The July Birth Flower is Larkspur.

There seems to be quite a few different meanings associated with the flower however the one that stands out to me is that it symbolises enjoying life.

They look gorgeous in all different colours and many individual colours have meanings of their own so this can be a great way to make something truly unique for someone who celebrates a birthday in July.

I used DMC floss and stitched with 2 strands throughout the design.

With green, start by stitching all the stems in split stitch.

Chain stitch the flowers on either side of the stem working your way up from the bottom to the top.

To create a thicker looking flower, stitch the outer layer of chain stitch in the same colour on the same flower.

Continue stitching the rest of the flower stems with chain stitch in the same way to complete the design. These are really nice and simple to stitch but look so pretty when completed.
