The design is from Needlepoint Now Sept/Oct 2015. It's by the same designer as the piece we did last Fall in guild...Stickideen Von Der Wienenburg.
I thought about the fun that I had with the other piece, and just as I was turning to the thread drawers to start fishing around, a skein of Caron Watercolours caught my eye. When I was at House of Stitches last time I picked it up because I thought the colors were so pretty, and it just hollered Easter to me. Perfect!
(The name of the color is Painted Desert, by the way.)
So I grabbed a few flosses and hit the Happy Chair and here's where things ended up before bed last night:
So far, this has been a lot of fun to play with...stay tuned for further developments! Today is laundry day, so there's bound to be some stitching in between loads!
