This anemone gave me so much grief when stitching, I posed a question in Q & A. It seems not many people have made this design or, if they have, not had problems. I would like to make at least 4 of these to attach to napkin rings.

I love the outcome of it. I also have carried on with projects that give me grief (my key). But, well worth it in the end isn't it?! Very pretty. The stamen looks like a royal pain tho, was it? *4U ><>

Thanks Joanie, In spite of everything this is my favourite flower and I really want to make more. The centre pistil and the stamens were both exasperating - to say the least!!

were the stamens in a seperate hooping from the center, if so - put a different center on the next one. I love the stamens.

elenu by elenu 04 May 2008

Yes they were Shirlener. Did you read Pat's comments? I'll let keep you informed of developments when I've contacted designer.

It turned out beautifully elenu. no one would ever know it gave u problems. Looks like it growing there amongst the ivy. *4U

Thank you Ibrow. Believe you me, I could have wished it to be growing in the Ivy rather than on my machine whilst stitching it!!

Yes, Coco, I was disappointed because I would still like to make more for a set of napkin holders. I hope I'll have some answers when I contact the designer.

This certainly looked a challenge, so I decided to
have a go, and see if it gave me as much grief as
it gave you.Never again, but if I did make another
one, I would cheat, and do the centre from another
flower, and I would buy the stamens. I wasted so
much thread it was unbelievable. I'll soak it, and
leave it overnight, and if it looks okay, I'll
put it on show !!

Thank you for doing that Pat, very pleased to hear that it is not me or my machine!! - I have emailed a couple of times but got to thinking (as you do) that perhaps you're not able to pick-up with O/Exp problems you are experiencing??

ron111otter by ron111otter 04 May 2008

Your e-mails came through, will answer
later, we're off out for the day, we are
being fed by daughter-in-law today as it's
Ron's 77th birthday.

It is wonderful, I bet the stamens were a headache to make. But your effort was worth it! Flower of the orange turn grey variety for you.

Thank you Mops. Yes, the stamens were difficult but came nowhere near the pistil centre.
