Here’s a pretty little single passion flower that could be used to adorn anything, really. It would look great mirrored on matching guest towels, or with a monogram between two images on a pillow case.
You can also adapt it into a lily, if you wanted.

I’m rather keen, personally, on white-on-white, so I like this pattern worked in white lines on white linen. Working all the lines in a stem stitch, I like to go back and fill the leaves with tiny seed stitches, worked very evenly in a bricking pattern. Actually, they would look fine randomly done as well. On the lily petals, I prefer a long & short stitch, with satin stitch on the circular center and on the little tips of the stamen. But, hey! That’s just me – it would look great in color, and needle-painted, it would look wonderful!
How do you think it would look good? I’d love to hear other ideas on it!
