Here is the second in this flower series. Again it is a Camellia flower, but this time I have changed it up a bit from the classic look. I've stitched the centres as French Knots. The sample ball was stitched in Perle 8 so there are A LOT of knots there. The colour changes are quite bold and I wondered if a more gradual change would be better so in the S10 version I did very subtle colour gradation... a little too subtle. I can barely see the difference.
Below there is the picture of the diamond pattern obi.
