A slight obsession with books

Sunken Treasures

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.

  1. Subtle… and very, very beautiful.

  2. Try a Rhodes with two colors. Do every other stitch with the darkest color, then fill in the remaining stitches with the white. Looking great so far!
