February's Square - CQJP2014

Here is my square for February for the Crazy Quilt Journal Project 2014.  Since it is February I thought I would do a heart to celebrate Valentine's Day.  February was a busy month for me and I was not able to finish my square, but here is what I managed to do.  I hope to add a little more embellishment in the future. I use DMC thread.

Below is a rose bud vine made using a double featherstitch, 
accented with lazy daisy stitches that are outlined with a fly stitch.

Below is a herringbone stitch anchored with straight stitch 
and accented with lazy daisy stitches.

 For this seam treatment below I wanted to mimic the fabric and 
decided to make bullion roses.  These roses have a double layer 
of bullion roses (using a single thread of DMC). 
 Leaves are made using a Fishbone stitch.

This is made using a straight stitch accented with French knots. 
 I used a lighter color for the French Knots, 
other wise this stitch could have been done in one thread color by doing a pistol stitch.

thanks for stopping by!
