Here are my trials on Kiko's flower stitch. I like all flower oriented stitch and this one is no exception.
The brown and green flowers are done with Anchor Stranded cotton floss. The yellow flowers are done with Perle cotton 9 thread.
I tried CQ seam treatment with a three petaled kiko's flower stitch, straight stitches and French knots and with a synthetic pearl bead in the middle.
The butterfly is done with Perle Cotton 9 and I got the idea from here.
