I just couldn’t resist making a start on this and I already know that I’m going to enjoy stitching it. I love the subtle colours.
So far I’ve just done band one, but haven’t yet added the beads. I’m debating whether to use a larger clip frame so I can add them as I go along, as they’d end up under the clip with this smaller one. I’m thinking it would be easier.
This is what it looks like so far.
Mostly cross stitch, with some Rhodes squares. I love doing Rhodes stitch as you get such fantastic texture.
There’s a little gold-coloured bow to put in the centre but I’m not sure if I like it. I may have a stash rummage and see if I’ve anything nicer, and if not, I’ll do a fancy stitch. Maybe a Rhodes.
