Further developments in SharonB's TAST challenge:
Here in blue, you can see 4 twisted chain stitches (it might be long-legged twisted chain). I worked it in the round to get the pink flower, which I really like.
The purple flower is just 5 Lazy Daisy petals of ribbon floss placed over (and between) 5 Lazy Daisy petals of Rainbow Gallery Flair (which I call tubular panty-hose).
Then there is the French Knot Lazy Daisy, where the tie-down stitch is a French knot instead of just a straight stitch. Each peach bud is a FKLD done around a padded straight stitch. The turquoise ribbon flower shows 6 petals of FKLD with the knots in the center. The two maroon flowers show FKLD with knots in the center and then with knots on the outer edge.
