Details
This gorgeous stargazer lily is stitched using a specifi c type of embroidery called “silk shading,” “needle painting,” or “stitch painting.” The technique creates a realistic image, and the silk thread gives the lily a luminous beauty that can’t be matched. The design also can be stitched with cotton floss, which is usually stripped down to a single strand, allowing for much detail but with a more muted sheen.
