Raised Stem Stitch and Shadow-box Laid Stitch

I learned another couple of stitches last night.

The flower bud interior used the Raised Stem Stitch. It was pretty fun and easy. Then satin stitch finished the edge. The leaf below the bud uses the fishbone stitch. The leaf to the left used satin stitch with split stitch outline.
The Shadow-box Laid stitch looked tricky but was fairly easy to do. Colours are used from darkest to lightest, criss-crossing to give depth. There is more of this stitch on the white magnolias in the centre.
I'm about half finished.
I'm really enjoying working with the wools and linen fabric. I will be on the hunt for more embroidery kits, including needlepoint.
