I started with some floral motifs worked in satin stitch today. These motifs are all from the pdf file downloaded from antique pattern library site.
These patterns were part of borders, fillers. I chose to do the motifs alone.
The florals are worked with cone thread[available in India], thickness similar to perle cotton thread.
Straight satin stitches worked on canvas with this thread, leaves gap in between the individual stitches.
Another two florals.
I found still more satin stitch patterns on the old book, so might try some of them .
