KNITTING TIP - How do you do a mattress stitch

​Is it normal to see flowers 🌼 when doing the mattress stitch 😁 ??

For some strange and unknown reason, I was able to memorize the mattress stitch technique by visualizing flowers.

HORIZONTAL MATTRESS SEAM:

The two leaves of the flower represent a stitch. When I have to join two rows together (horizontal seam), I visualize a road between the rows and I have to pick up each flower (stitch) by passing the tapestry needle behind them...

VERTICAL MATTRESS SEAM:

And when I have to join two rows together (vertical seam), I imagine that I have to pull on the stem by passing the needle between the two leaves...

I'm sharing this mattress stitch tip hoping it may help visual learner like me!
