Consider the fact that one stitch looks messy, make a few, which will smoothly transform into each other. We extend the middle of roses with beads. For small roses, use three beads, for large roses - you can take five. Fasten the thread inside out, bring it out, grab the bead and bring the needle back inside out. The next time, repeat the same - the same actions, but before you bring the needle inside out - thread the needle into the previous bead. This technique of beading is called "circular" - it provides a smooth transition and a tight fit of beads to each other.
