we've been doing a "needlepoint beyond" class at my lns the garden district needlework shop for the past month and our current project is kelly clark's spring crazy quilt. i've completed lesson 1 and was getting anxious to start the next lesson when our lesson 2 class was cancelled. since patience is definitely not a virtue of mine, i have pushed forward and started lesson 2.
the red and yellow sections in the very right-hand corner are the beginning of lesson 2. i started on the pavilion diamond stitch under the pansy bouquet in black petite very velvet, but it looks funny to me. maybe when the accentuate thread is laid on top in the "X" stitch it will look normal.
pretty scotch stitches just never get old to me!
horrible picture, but you get the idea. i'm loving all the different stitches and techniques, it really forces you to break out of your comfort zone!
