Grandiose Mum ~ #11 Brazilian Dimensional Embroidery at it’s grandest. Royal, Grand, Impressive all describe the Chrysanthemum.. The petals, some over 100 wraps may seem a bit of a challenge – once you have done a couple it is easy ( instructions included in design pkg) Many of the petals are only 15-25 wraps. I stitched this Mum with #39, but it would be magnificent in #328 (shades of rose, wine and periwinkle) and other lavenders/purples. Stitch instructions are found in Art of Dimensional Embroidery book, by Maria Freitas. creating these beautiful flower instructions are in design package. EdMar thread I used: Lola #39 x 2 skeins, Lola #99, Iris #99 – also 2 skeins, Glory #45 & #39. Green cotton floss, such as DMC is used for padding the calyx.
Thread Stretcher/Straigtner is optional, but recommended for the Lola thread with the Design size is 10″ X 7 “
