Pleased with my achievement though I need to amend the sewing order and adjust the shading to reshape and soften it.

The first stitchout was more puckered than I liked so have redone it with more stabiliser and some spray starch.

Looking very nice as your first flower spray! Share some details on the stabilizer used and is the fabric 100% cotton? Smiling at that Flower!

For the second stitchout I used starched polycottnon and two layers of medium weight tearaway stabilizer. This reduced the puckering. The amended shading was an improvement.

I uses medium weight tearaway, polycotton fabric and rayon thread.

Very pretty. So happy at what you have created. The teacher in me wants to mention that Rayon thread has beautiful sheen but it is more delicate than polyester embroidery thread. Use polyester machine embroidery thread on items that get washed with frequency. Sometimes poly blend fabrics may have a pucker or two, whereas cotton is easily penetrated by the needle so the same design may stitch differently on cotton. It's just worth noting should you ever run into a problem. Really nice job on your first flower.
