This month’s SAL features another original pattern – a lotus flower and greeting in the Hindu tradition.
1 8″ x 8″ swatch of fabric
Size 9 embroidery needle
Embroidery floss in your choice of colors
Tips and Tricks:
- I’ll be using one thread throughout the design as I’m going to do some “needle painting” with that long and short stitch.
- DMC 37965 looks a tad more blue-ish green in person than in the photo, so I’m hoping it will be a nice intermediate color between 964 and the white. Let’s keep fingers crossed on that one.

Stitches I think I’ll be using in this design include:

- Straight stitch
Be sure to add pics of both your work in progress and your completed pieces on Instagram and tag #NewLeafSAL so we can all see what everyone is getting up to.
Most importantly, have fun!
