My 'busy daisies' which are not lazy as they work quickly to cover fabric. They are stitched with lazy daisy stitch and French knots, and are inspired by the most common-or-garden flower to be found on vintage hand-embroidered tablecloths.
This is how you get really smooth, lovely satin stitches. Outline in split or chain stitch, fill in the area with chain or long & short stitches, and then do the satin stitch. The underlying stitches support the satin stitch and help it to lay smoothly.
