30 Tiny Floral Embroidery Motifs

      The floral examples on this plate are given as suggestions for motifs to be worked into groups, borders, and patterns. Each one is worked on a geometrical construction or from the construction of the stitches, and in no case is a drawing necessary. The color and form of most of them are impressions of wild flowers. It has been necessary to limit the descriptive details to the colors and the names of the stitches used, but study of the photograph should make the working clear.
