What are you most proud of? The different embroidery stitches utilized to complete this floral bouquet. It had been a while since I used such stitches as Open Fishbone Stitch and Squared Filling.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make sure that you have all the materials in one place. I was fortunate enough that the contents of the kit were still together. Also, when working on something like this with a variety of colored yarn, it is a good idea to organize in a way that keeps the yarn accessible and untangled. See the last photo for how I did it using cardboard pieces.
