Finished Scarf

Here is the finished Persian Flower!
As you can see I choose a leaf in the similar style for the accent design on the other end of the scarf. I drew it onto solvy and just put it in the hoop with out basting, since it was smaller it didn't really need it.
I stitched it in using the same green variegated Perle cotton thread in chain stitch and stem stitch for the stem. Then I stem stitched the vein with the same size 10 yellow DMC Cebelia, and also put in the lazy daisy stitches. Then I filled in the center of the lazy daisy stitch with a straight stitch in 4mm ribbon that is a nice light coral-pink, in Silk Ribbon Embroidery when you fill in a lazy daisy with a straight stitch it's called the decorative lazy daisy.
Here is a funny tid-bit for you! After I finished the accent design, I realized that I stitched it on the wrong side of the fabric! So in order for both motifs to be seen you have to fold the scarf at the neck! LOL At least it's not so noticeable to ruin the scarf.
Also I fell in love with the scarf...I know I intended it as a gift but I love it so much that I'm going to keep this one. I bought another pink scarf set to embroider for the gift.
