I decided to join in with the "Never Ending Sampler" that Pam Kellogg has started on her blog and Facebook page.
I made a mistake in band 6 but I left it. I didn't notice until I was half way through band 7. Those flowers in band 6...arrgh. I picked out more than I stitched...LOL So needless to say there was no way I was going to pick it out again.
I'm really enjoying doing this sampler though. Some bands are easy and some
not so much. A good challenge. There are lots of possible seam
treatments for Crazy Quilting as well.
This is my progress so far.....
I've been using variegated threads for most of it as I seem to have a collection of them. A couple are so old they are J & P Coats. That used to be the only brand of basic embroidery thread that was sold locally now it's DMC thread. This is also a perfect opportunity to try to use up as many of the small remnants I have of needlepoint canvas.
The light today isn't very good to take pics. My canvas it a blue gray so that doesn't help much either:)
The thread that I used in the last line barely shows against the canvas as it's very pale shades of green and turquoise so I may unpick it and use a darker colour.
