Wood Embroidery ~ Landscape Scene

My first stab at my own wood embroidery design! Pretty simple and small but just wanted to play around with it a little. 
Let me tell you, the type of wood makes ALL of the difference! Don't go with the cheap stuff. 
My Colorful Moth project was such a struggle to drill all the holes. Having this Basswood made all the difference. 
Easier to drill through, a much softer wood, but less splintering and slipping of the drill bit. 
Of course, I had to start with the new fav stitch, Turkey Stitch. I used this to create some grassy texture. 
Stitches: French Knots {flower center}, Woven Wheel {pink flower}, Raised Leaf {dark green leafs} and Stem {flower stem}
Stitches: Stem (outside of leaf} and Back {inside of leaf}
Stitches: Woven Oval {Purple flower} and I'm still looking for the name of the orange flower {someone message me if you know!}
Stitches: Woven Oval {blue flower} and Raised Leaf (bird flying}
Quite the collection starting: Wood Embroidery Colorful Moth, Wood Embroidery Landscape, Blue Butterfly Needle Painting
