Bargello Sampler 4/8
I have been making some progress on my Bargello Sampler. Baseball games provide lots of stitching time. The size of this project is approximately 8 1/2″ X 11″. It is the MOST colorful piece I have ever stitched and I am wondering if I have gone over the top.
The chart presents a challenge as it is in four quadrants with no overlap. Right now I am working where all four charts come together and it is a little frustrating. The charts a very good and done differently than any other bargello chart I have ever used. Instead of line stitches the stitches are represented by colored grid squares. I have not seen a chart like this before. I wish there was an overlap but, heck, what would a project be if it didn’t present something new.
I think I am going to work on Flying Geese today. I like having a choice of projects all set up and ready stitch.
I sent in my registration for the ANG Seminar in Columbus this October. Now the waiting for class selections. My top choice is unusual this year. It is a canvas embelishment class where (if I get it) I hope to learn about thread and stitch selection for a painted canvas that I got at last years Seminar Silent Auction. I don’t do many painted canvases but I have a few I would like to do.
