In Progress – Spring Needlepoint Project

Spring Needlepoint Band in Progress

This week I’m working on a brand new Spring needlepoint project, featuring colorful blossoms worked in DMC’s gorgeous Color Variations #5 Pearl Cotton.

I’m using 4025 Caribbean Bay, 4050 Roaming Pastures, 4100 Summer Breeze, and 4190 Ocean Coral, along with solid white pearl cotton as the background filling. It’s being stitched on 14 mesh white interlock canvas.

Like many of my designs, this project started out as a doodle on a scrap of canvas.This is about 2 days worth of work so far, with just a few hours per sitting, so the project is working up quickly. The charted design will be posting soon in the Free Projects section of the site, so do check back!

PS: I’ll be having some fun with the finishing on this band – can you guess what I’m going to make out of it?
