I know I had 6 petals - I had prepared them all the night before and I had even counted them when I pulled them out to start stitching. The four petals were stitched on and it was then decided to do a run to Macca's and I put them aside for safe travelling. After eating and returning to the car to stitch I couldnt find the two hexies - spent half an hour with both DH and I searching the car - no luck! I believe they may be in the MacDonalds car park. DH did offer to go back and look but the weather was awful and I knew that even if he did find them that they wouldnt be salvageable so I continued along with more flowers. After coming home I managed to find just enough fabric to complete this flower - how lucky was that.
