I've really enjoyed this stitching project so far. I've discovered that I love working with perle floss and Satin Stitch. The fabric is blue 28 count evenweave (I think it's Jobelan, but I'm not sure) and we're using Chameleon perle and Chameleon cotton floss. Lovely to work with, although the yellow is a bit of a sickly colour :-( The pattern is once again from Thimble Cottage designs, so is actually designed by our stitch class teacher, Tanya.
Here's what I managed to do in class last time (I was stitching non-stop for three hours - how could it take three hours to finish just this much??)
I've now finished all I can before going back to class on Tuesday. Here's how it's looking:
And a close up to show off the little Rice Stitches and the Satin Stitch that I have been so much enjoying:
And finally the finished piece so far. There is a bit more I should have done - there should be a line of cable stitch underneath the backstitched daisy stems. But unfortunately I ran out of the perle floss so I just hope I'll be able to get more on Tuesday.
