three different colored stitchs are on a piece of fabric with the words ribbed web stitch

In between the web stitch I also attempted the lazy daisy stitch. I found it hard to keep the 'petals' even, but I'm sure that's just down to practice.

Pass the needle through the thread loop. 4. Stitch down at C, holding the loop of thread in place. 5. The finished petal looks like this. 6. Make more stitches in a circle.
