I got a bit distracted by some needlepoint this week. I loved the different threads with their different textures and I loved the different stitches and how they covered the canvas. The design is Jim Wurth's Hearts and Flowers (one of the dodecagon ornament series). I also like the fact that it is rather sparkly and the beading gives a very dimensional aspect to it.
I have also finished off one of the floral panels on Baroque Garden - the tomato panel. One day I might stitch something over one and not find my counting is a little bit off in one area (but only I know where the mistakes are and then I forget). I still love how the floral panels end up looking like the original botanical plates (Gottorfer Codex).
I also have some things back from the framer but will post piccies of these later.
I also mailed my Chatelaine smalls exchange to my exchange partner - it should arrive this week and then I can post some photos of that too
Happy stitching - there has been some lovely stitching on everyone's blogs in the last week
