Flowers & Bow Ties & Scarves

….are what I’ve been embroidering recently on my 13th Doctor hoop.

A close-up of the Thirteenth Doctor embroidery hoop. A small yellow border has been stitched around an empty circle. The border is reminiscent of a sun, or small flower petals.

After extensive research, I figured out that the flower from series 11 episode 6 is likely a daffodil, hence the asymmetrical centre of the flower.

A close-up of the yellow stitching from the last image, this time with the centre filled. It's filled with asymmetrical stitches in a darker yellow, and the motif looks like a daffodil head from straight-on.

I was originally going to do French knots for the gold dots on the bow tie, but then I came up with weaving the metallic thread through the black satin stitch, which works wonderfully!

You can see it up close here, I reckon it’s really effective! And much less work than French knots with metallic thread.

An even closer-up shot, taken from an angle, of the bow tie motif. The woven effect of the stitching is more visible.

Above is where I’m at now, and I’m currently working out how to put tassels on the ends of the scarf. I’m also tossing up whether to put the neon pink stripe in…. I’m leaning towards yes!

Anyways, see ya!
