Monday Mystery Stitch part A

Last night I posted the layout template.  You can get it here.   Mystery stitch layout template      
Grab your 12-12.5" approx. background fabric, fold in it in half both directions and mark lightly or crease well to find centers.  Transfer template to fabric, I use water soluble blue pens to transfer if I make tracing errors see the yellow green one you can see what I did smack dab in the middle.  If you are not using a water soluble pen, DO NOT make any marks in the center circle. Only SOLID lines will be stitched.  Dotted or dashed are only registration marks.  If you are only stitching in one color, do an outline stitch (or backstitch if you wish) around the whole thing I would NOT stitch the outside circle.  If you are using several colors pick one and stitch around one petal unit only until you decide what to do after you see part B. This will be part A.

Now on to the monday reveal............. you can get the template here........
monday mystery stitch part A

I have given you several options, and also stitched out samples of various below.... on the printout
option 1 is the original, option 2 an easier version, option 3 adds a lttle more detail.  When I was doing the one in celadon/yellow green I felt it needed more colors so I added optional dots!!!!  The dots work well with option 1 or 2.  See the tan and black sample.

Have fun and email me if you have any questions, or want to send pics.
