I wanted to try a different yarn too, so I used an acrylic thread for these flowers.

Raised cup stitch again
I didn’t touch my embroidery for almost a week! But today I made some time to finish my raised cup stitch sampler. First I added some purple and blue flowers next to the red and yellow one’s I already made with perle 5. Shirley added a lot of beads to the center of her flowers and that reminded me of the drizzle stitch. So I made some drizzle stitches in my flowers and then I decorated them with woven picot leaves.My next raised cup flower is a daffodil. I made 2 rounds of stitches with perle 5 with a small French knot inside. For the petals I used the woven picot again.
