Deborah: Palestrina stitch

Sorry to be late again, ladies.
Here is my Palestrina stitch:

I'm seeing baskets everywhere on this block. I'm not sure the outcome is exactly what I envisioned. This is taken with my phone, again, because I haven't taken the camera to be fixed yet. 

I'm still working on the June block. I've had a hard time finding decent photos.

Deborah, that is the most beautiful basket I've seen for a long time. What a great use of the Palestrina stitch. And I love the French knots & beaded middle.
The handle of the basket is great too.

I never thought about the palestrina stitch for a basket, but it works beautifully on your basket...very sweet!

Really clever to use the already stitched flowers as the contents of your basket! Very pretty basket.

The palestrina is perfect for creating the basket! And that French knot/beaded band is beautiful! Very nice!

Thank you all so much. I was a little unsure about the flowers I added after I had done them but I think they work. Thanks again for all your kind comments.

There's something very traditional about the look of the basket, and at the same time, something very artsy-modern! Intriguing combination!

This basket could also be an easter egg! heh. ..or maybe I'm not quite awake yet. The Palestrina stitch worked very well. I also like the textural French Knots and beads section.

Very pretty basket. The shiny thread is a nice touch.
