Details for this project:

*Below are the different Stitches I used in this project:
Back Stitch Tutorial
Rose Stitch (try not to pull really tight or it will take a long time to finish the rose)
Daisy Stitch/Detached Chain Stitch
French Knot (wrapped around twice)
*I only drew the Texas outline on my hoop and then did the stems wherever I felt like it and added the leaves last 🙂
*Template is for a 6 inch hoop

Below is the original template I made. I thought I would want to do more roses but as you can see from the final product I chose not to. (They were annoying me.)

I did all the ferns first since I wanted them underneath the roses.

Next I added the roses which was more challenging than normal because I kept accidentally going under the ferns. (That is a main reason why I only did three roses, plus I liked how it looked!) Last I added peach dots (french knots) to fill in empty spaces that were left over!
